Synopsis: Mazie is ready to celebrate liberty. She is ready to celebrate freedom. She is ready to celebrate a great day in American history ― the day her ancestors were no longer slaves. Mazie remembers the struggles and the triumph, as she gets ready to celebrate Juneteenth.
Recommendation– I think this a great read aloud book during Black History month. I did not know about this holiday myself and so I think it would be very interesting to young children. The graphics are muted and really pull across the history that they are trying to convey. So a must read for school teachers and preschool to educate the young about a little known holiday.
