The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963 by Christopher Curtis
The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963

triple threat, March 5, 2012

This book was fantastic! I have read other Christopher Paul Curtis books that were amazing so I had read this one. It's everything that I love in books. The main character, Kenny, is so funny. The author tells the story from little Kenny's point of view. I can definitely connect to his thoughts and actions to my life when I was a kid. He has an older sibling who tricks him a lot just like I do so I know how he feels and that makes the book seem more real. This book takes place in the 1960's but it is very realistic. It gives a lot of information about the time and what was happening to America at the time. If you read the book, you'll be learning about new things and having so much fun reading at the same time. It's a great book for middle school students that I highly reccomend. This book is great for those who enjoy a good laugh history.
