    Story
    "Powerful true story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This true story is beautifully told.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pink and Say?

    It made the Civil War more personal for my students.


    What does Melba Sibrel and Hal Hollings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I only gave the reading 4 stars because I thought Hollings could have varied his voice more for the different characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The story was quite moving, even for my "tough" fifth-graders who usually don't want to share a lot of vulnerable feelings.

    "Great for dialect!"

    What I like about this audio is that it helps students understand the dialect of Pink and Moe Moe Bay especially.
