Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-Jack Henry is afraid of the coach-whip snake he finds in the barn, and he won't tell anyone about it because he doesn't want to look like a scaredy-cat. Even worse, he and his cousin have to sleep in the barn to make room in the house for all of the visiting relatives. In the end, his superstitious fears about the reptile pale in comparison to other concerns, and Jack Henry dances away from the ordeal with a good lesson about courage and common sense tucked firmly under his belt. This realistic vignette of a boy who conquers a big fear is simple and honest. The illustrators depict this loving, turn-of-the-19th-century family in soft lantern-lit watercolors. The title and much of the narrative point to the African-American family's rousing evening of waltzes and square dances on the parlor floor, but Jack Henry dances only after he has faced his fear and overpowered it. A quietly reassuring story.
