    Enter the hilarious world of ten-year-old Kenny and his family, the Weird Watsons of Flint, Michigan. There's Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta, Kenny, and Byron, Kenny's older brother, who at thirteen is an "official juvenile delinquent." When Momma and Dad decide it's time for a visit to Grandma, Dad comes home with the amazing Ultra-Glide, and the Watsons set out on a trip like no other. Heading south, they're going to Birmingham, Alabama, and toward one of the darkest moments in America's history.

    What did you love best about The Watsons Go to Birmingham: 1963?

    I loved the animated voice of the reader and the music that accompanied the reading


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Byron was my favorite character because of his good heart and ability to constantly get into trouble.


    What about LeVar Burton’s performance did you like?

    He read the book wonderfully; it was almost acted out.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Birmingham Church Bombing from a child's point of view


    Any additional comments?

    I would have appreciated chapter stops.
