In Edwidge's story, Junior is trapped under his pancaked house for eight whole days. After he is saved, people ask him repeatedly: "What did you do all this time? Were you scared? Did you cry?" "I played," he answers/ And so with each page, we see how he played his mind every day he was trapped-how he played marbles with his friends, won the beset solo part in the choir, biked through St. Marc with his little sister, and ate the sweetest mango. Hope, love, and warmth dance across each page, reminding us that sometimes it is the simplest beauties that help us find our strength. This timely, beautiful book is the perfect tool to help parents talk with their children about tragedy and hope. Based on a true story, author Edwidge Danticat, a Haitian-American, weaves a story that is truly from the heart.
