This is the Rope

by Jacqueline Woodson

A beautiful, thoughtful story about a little girl moving North during the Great Migration, from Newbery Honor–winning author Jacqueline Woodson and Coretta Scott King Award–winning illustrator James Ransome. During the time of the Great Migration, millions of African American families relocated from the South, seeking better opportunities. With grace and poignancy, Woodson’s lilting storytelling and Ransome’s masterful oil paintings of country and city life tell a rich story of a family adapting to change as they hold on to the past and embrace the future.
