Beautifully delicate watercolor illustrations leave a lasting impression of the story of Juneteenth, when enslaved people in Texas learned they were free. The illustrator shows a range of reactions, trying to imagine what it was like. Back matter includes a timeline of important dates (1863-1865), a few paragraphs on "Juneteenth, Then and Now," a list of online sources, and a glossary of key terms. Now that Juneteenth is a federal holiday the back matter is not perfectly up-to-date, but don't throw the baby out with the bathwater - this is still an incredibly worthwhile book.… (mere)

Such a beautifully written and illustrated book that explains the history and movement of celebrating Juneteenth. It's written with language and emotion children can understand.
