A tender and lyrical portrayal of the special relationship between a young African-American girl and her grandmother, by an acclaimed author and an award-winning illustrator. "Quinnie Blue, Did your mama teach you about the family tree?" Through a series of thoughtful questions and vivid reflections, a young girl imagines what childhood was like for her grandmother-- Hattie Lottie Annie Quinnie Blue--the woman she is named after. In this exceptional picture book, Dinah Johnson's expressive language joyously invokes the spirit of an African-American community. James Ransome's beautiful paintings depict in turn the past and present generations of a family, and a special relationship that connects the two. Quinnie Blue is a wonderful celebration of family roots and the passing on of heritage.
