    One thought on “In Coal Country”

    1. I read this aloud to 1st graders and bring some real coal so that they can see what it is like. Unlike most of the rocks they know, it is relatively soft and a little oily. It makes their fingers black so it is important to make sure they can wash their hands before touching anything else. Students can learn that even though the coal miner's life was hard, the children of coal miners didn't realize there was anything unusual about their childhood and they did a lot of the same things modern affl [...]

    2. I enjoyed reading this to my children. It wasn't that long ago that I read Rocket Boys, by Homer Hickam, thinking I was going to read a story about boys and rockets, but discovering instead that the bit about boys and rockets was woven into a memoir about growing up in West Virginia coal country. This life is foreign to me and my children, since we hail from the Great Plains, and so I was especially glad for this picture book.

    3. The prose of this book would make it a nice addition to the secondary classroom and the writer's workshop. Reads like a memoir in celebration of the hard work of fathers and mothers and growing up in coal country. Ohio teachers may really like this one for their younger readers!

    4. Fits into railroad and big business unit. I love the use of color in this book. Text is lengthier, but I really like the portrayal of coal mining town life.

    5. My mom loved this book since it described similarities to her life growing up in the coal camps of Wyoming.
