Cool Books: The Watsons Go To Birmingham - 1963

You know you're in for a great read when you start laughing out loud in the pediatrician's waiting room and your eldest daughter starts inching away from you. And you're only on Chapter One.

The book? The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis.

Go read it. I'll post a review when I finish this.

I loved this book. It only gets better, too, from where you are. Looking forward to the review.

This one made me a C.P. Curtis fan for life.

Agreed, this made me a Christopher Paul Curtis fan for life as well. I read it aloud EVERY single year and I have never had one kid say they didn't love it. IT IS SO FUNNY!
(I do admit that I do NOT like Christopher Paul Curtis's Mr. Chickee's series. Hate both those books... love everything else.

I'm with everyone else--what a fabulous book! I envy you discovering it for the first time. I'm about to pass it along to my husband and son for their next read-aloud.
