As I was reading Mother to Son by Kimberley R. Crouch, I got to thinking how many single mothers we truly have out there. In her book, Crouch shares with readers a number of facts and various situations that will help any mother to raise a son. She gives a number of views by various people that are all encouraging.

I myself have no children, let alone a son. Yet as I reading this, I felt the power and the strength she was conveying to readers. She was real with the experiences she included in the book. I honestly believe that this book will be of great use to not only single mothers, but married mothers as well.

Crouch's "Mother to Son" will become a classic. Written as a series of letters from a mother to her son, it offers practical advice, hope, and foundational wisdom. She does a great job of interweaving her personal experiences as examples of the larger issues.

Something else noticeable, she mentions an issue in one letter (lesson), then expands on it in the next. This method, even if unintentional, gives the book a unique flow. I could not put it down.

I give it 5/5 stars. Personally, I will give this book as a gift to everyone I know. I highly recommend this book for all young men (especially young African-American men), mothers (especially single mothers), educators, and the general public.

To grow up living as public enemy number one based solely on your gender and the color of your skin is something that no one should have to endure, yet it is a reality. Finally, a book that addresses issues African-American males will inevitably have to face in today's society. Crouch's book personally discusses these issues and explains why it is important for us to learn our history and know that the African American community shares a unique past that helps us to empower ourselves. This book is an easy read making it perfect for your son or daughter to give them understanding of life, hope, inspiration, and knowledge while celebrating our African-American heritage.

Format: Paperback
This book offers great wisdom and insight for young Black men. The valuable lessons outlined in this text are useful to anyone responsible for, or concerned with the development of young Black men. Mother to Son tackles the tough subjects that are not addressed in school. Even after mastering the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic, young men still need the knowledge and inspiration provided in this book. We must use books like this as tools for preparing our future leaders.

Take the time to read this book. I am sure you will find it thought provoking,useful and inspiring. After you read it, encourage others to do the same!!!
