Fantastic Children's Book

Just read the heartbreaking picture/story, Who Tells the Moon to Sleep? by Haley Whitehall It will be a fantastic, tender-hearted   book to share with my grandchildren about the days of slavery, and the children then. What the life was like for the slave children. Tess questions why her and Mama are told when to do everything, even play or eat or sleep, but other things in life aren't. She comes to realize that they can never me completely be owned as no one, not even Master Embry can own their heart or mind. There are beautiful illustrations by Bill Pilgrim to go along with story.
