Chicken Sunday by Patricia Polacco

After being initiated into a neighbor?s family by a solemn backyard ceremony, a young Russian American girl and her African American ?brothers? determine to buy their gramma Eula a beautiful Easter hat. But their good intentions are misunderstood, until they discover just the right way to pay for the hat that Eula?s had her eye on. A loving family story woven from the author?s childhood.?Polacco has outdone herself with these joyful, energetic illustrations, her vibrant colors even richer and more intense than usual, while authentic details enhance the interest. A unique piece of Americana.?--Kirkus Reviews, pointer review?In this moving picture book, the hatred sometimes engendered by racial and religious differences is overpowered by the love of people who recognize their common humanity.? --Booklist, starred, boxed review?The text conveys a tremendous pride of heritage as it brims with rich images from her characters? African American and Russian Jewish cultures?A tribute to the strength of all family bonds.? --Publishers Weekly, starred review
