    Jmarin3: I think these books would be a good connection because one is historical fiction and the other is contemporary fiction. In Clean Getaway, Scoob learns about the green book and what his grandmother and grandfather went through in the 1960s. I think it would be a good compare/contrast.… (mere)

Ruth and her parents are driving south in the 1950s to visit her grandma in Alabama. She learns that black people are not welcome in many places and her family struggles to find somewhere to stay, get gas, and eat. At a gas station, they are introduced to a the green book which shows friendly places black people can go throughout the south. After that, they are able to stay in safe, welcoming places and meet others on the way to her grandma's.

This book is excellent at explaining what Jim Crow and segregation was like in the 1950s from the view of a child. It goes through what Ruth is thinking and feeling during their journey. The book is both sad and heartwarming; it makes you glad there were and are still kind people. ( )

Ruth and the Green Book is a book about Ruth and her family's trip. Ruth was very excited until finding out many hotels would refuse service to her family, due to Jim Crow laws. A gas station worker gave her family a Green Book, and because of this book it helped them travel. this Green Book listed all the places where they would be treated equally and accepted. This book would be helpful in a History class learning about segregation and discrimination against African Americans. ( )

Ruth and the Green Book is a wonderful multicultural children's book that follows Ruth and her family as they travel across the United States to visit Ruth's grandmother in Alabama. Ruth and her family encounter discrimination along their journey until they reach an Esso gas station and learn of The Negro Motorist Green Book. Guided by the Green Book, Ruth is able to help her family find establishments welcoming black people. Ramsey and Strauss tackle the realities of segregation in a very thoughtful, yet informative way for children. The illustrations are warm and calming which work as a very nice juxtaposition with the content. This book will make a great addition to my classroom library and I will definitely be using it during our Famous Americans unit. ( )

This book follows a young African American girl, Ruth, and her family during their road trip through the south in the 1950’s. In the book Ruth and her family purchase a “Green Book” to help them safely navigate where they can and cannot go while in certain states. Although the story of Ruth is fictional, the “Green Book” is real and it was something used in the 50’s to help African American travelers avoid unsafe places. I liked this historical fiction book, because it incorporates fictional character, but the main part of the book is true. I had heard of the Green Book before reading this, but I didn’t know a lot about it so I really liked that they included a page on the history of “The Negro Motorist Green Book.” ( )

I can’t believe I was uninformed about the Green Book, even when I heard about the movie I didn’t understand the significance of its title even though I have had interest in seeing the movie. It wasn’t until learning of this children’s picture book that I learned about The Green Book.

The story moved me emotionally, the parts of what Ruth and her family had to go through to the fate of Brown Bear the teddy bear. Heartbreaking. Infuriating. Heartwarming.

I want to learn more about this history. I’m hoping that plenty of white owned/run businesses with while employees also were listed in the Green Book. In this book it was mostly African-American/black run businesses that seemed to welcome African-American/black travelers.

Lush, gorgeous, large illustrations. I loved the expressiveness of people’s expressions. I loved the art style. I loved everything about them. They’re beautiful and they’re crucial part of the storytelling.

The last page of the book is informational. It’s text heavy but includes a photo of the cover of a real Green Book and a photo of a two-page spread of its contents.

Highly recommended for girls and boys ages 7-11, and all interested older people too. ( )
