Format: Paperback
Reading Doo-Dah Day! was quite adventuresome. The action began on the first page and continued throughout, making me want to read non-stop. Revealing the racism of the folks in Wilmington in the late 1800's through the eyes of children was a gentle way of provoking thought about the topic. While the author did not mention discrimination against folks based on disability in the description of the book, that concept was included in the story in an unobtrusive manner. I learned about the history and geography of the area as I read the story and would like to visit the area as a result. The questions at the end of the book are excellent in educating students about such topics as "coup", "character development", "moral decisions", "faith", "friendship", and the role of "songs." Book clubs would find the questions ripe for their discussions. I would highly recommend this book as a text for middle school aged children and as an enjoyable, entertaining, educational work for those who are older.

I knew a little about the historical event that inspired this book prior to purchase and was pleasantly surprised at how it was woven into what became a very compelling story by mid-way through. The descriptions of the locale, interesting characters, and suspenseful events became so vivid that at times I felt as if I were watching a movie rather than reading a book. Race and class issues that were raised would be excellent discussion points for book clubs. Overall, I found the book to be an excellent first effort from this author and hope for more books to follow.

Doo-Dah Day! was a wonderful book. I really felt for the characters and I was anxious to get from chapter to chapter to find out what happened next. This was a well written book that took historical events and blended them into a great story. I highly recommend it.
