At The Crossroads

Rachel Isadora (A and ILT)

List Price: $7.99 (Paperback / South Africa / Children's Love for their Fathers - 1994)

Description: The children of a South African village eagerly gather at the crossroads to welcome their fathers, who have been away for months working in the mines. The children wait, but the men don't come. So the children keep waiting. And waiting. They wait all through the night, until the dawn brings both the day and the longed-for loved ones.A "lively portrayal of young children in a South African village eagerly awaiting their fathers' homecoming after ten months of working in the mines....A unique glimpse...and one that deserves a place in all collections."--School Library Journal (32 pgs) Ages 4-8

Ashay says, "This is a beautiful story and it is so touching. It still rings true. The African men work hard in the mines for little pay and their children still wait for them to return safely. Also I am a big fan of Rachel Isadora's illustrations. Must have for the classroom and library."
