From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- In this collection of childhood memories, Haskins celebrates the warmth of family and community in ``121,'' the house in the African-American neighborhood of Washington, D. C. in which she grew up. She describes her first meeting with her baby brother when she was three, the smells and tastes of delicious meals with her extended family, being chased by the neighborhood dog, being punished for leaving school early, and other joys and adventures. As one might expect from a storyteller, her writing successfully captures the immediacy and rhythms of speech. Haskins's gaily colored illustrations in ink, magic marker, and wax crayons have the freshness of children's drawings. The irregular perspective and stylized figures with their wide eyes and large hands and feet create a mood of innocence and optimism. But things change of course, and the family moves to a new ``. . . house with a front yard with flowers and a big cherry tree in the back yard. We were moving to a new home and adventure. I was nine.'' This book should encourage parents (and grandparents) to share their own memories with their children. Beginning readers will enjoy it too. Here's hoping for a sequel about Haskins's suburban adventures. --Susan Giffard, Englewood Public Library, NJ
