And Flossie is not the only great thing about this book. Patricia McKissack based it on a story her grandfather told her and she tried to reproduce the way he told it, in "the rich and colorful dialect of the rural south." The language is lovely, musical and poetic Ð a joy to read aloud. And the illustrations are equally gorgeous. The pictures of sun-dappled wood remind me of Impressionist paintings.
Great story, great writing, great pictures, great character Ð this is one of the best childrenÕs books IÕve ever read.
Flossie outsmarted the Fox.
I made stick puppets of each of the "characters,"
and we had fun pretending to be Flossie and Fox as we went thru. the pages.
Kids could act out this story easily. I'm buying it for my grandson (white) before it goes out of print, and I can't wait till he's old enough to get a kick out of it.

When my children were very young, I checked this book out at the library to read to them. I put in all the African-American dialect and gave each of the characters their own voice. Read morePublished on January 15, 2011 by Ragamuffin
