The Gold Cadillac Reviews
I purchased this book for my nine-year-old daughter. We read it together and had deep conversations about the concepts of discrimination, segregation and race relations. It was a fabulous read and opened her eyes to the history of our world in a way that she could easily understand. I highly recommend this book. I encourage parents to read along with their children.
great books, great author! bough the entire series for my daughter.
This book was a great read aloud for my students. We loved the message and also the idea of the story being told by a child to show how kids were feeling during the civil rights era. Nice!
Easy read good story
I have always been a fan of Mildred Taylor books. I purchase the book for my granddaughter reading assignment. After reading this book with my granddaughter we both were very please with this selection.
I thought this was a good book to show what times were like back then in the north and south. And it was what I would call a short and sweet story, meaning it was very very good but kind of short or quick too.
This book arrived in mint condition. Paid more for shipping than the book. It is a terrific book to read. Students , especially boys seem to enjoy the book. Children aren't aware of all the injustices that African-Americans endured during the early 50's and 60's in a desegregated society!
I suggest to get your child all of mildred d taylors collection she was good at catching the hate and rasism that went on in the south and other parts of the united states. these books are very real the smaller readers such as this book is good for your 5-6th graders and the novels are perfect for your 7-8th graders!!
