Read full description of the books:



I was curious to see how a picture book would tackle this upsetting subject. The author includes two specific instances of discrimination: a gas station attendant refuses to allow Ruth or her mother to use the station's bathroom, but we don't see that man; a hotel clerk denies the family a room despite having vacancies, and we do see this man in the illustration. After that, the discrimination is referred to in the abstract--lots of people shun Ruth's family, but we don't see each separate insult, which probably makes the story easier for children to handle.

The story instead focuses on the network of folks helping to make travel safer for black Americans traveling the States at the time, starting with the Esso gas station attendant who recommends a copy of The Green Book. (Note, it wasn't just the Jim Crow "South" that black travelers had to endure; discrimination and danger lurked everywhere.) The illustrations are soft and comforting, yet the black characters' faces are detailed and precise. We really see the emotions. Sometimes perspective seems to be a bit off (characters not *quite* looking at each other) but I'm no artist and that's a small complaint for a book so sorely needed.

A page of nonfiction at the end provides more info about the history of The Negro Motorist Green Book.
