ROOSEVELT GRADY BOOK LOUISA R. SHOTWELL
Roosevelt knew all about "taking away from"; he had learned that kind of arith- metic maybe three or four times in the last few schools he had been to. That was the trouble with always moving, follow- ing the crops; you never got a chance to find out anything new. And there was a new thing Roosevelt purely had to find out: "putting into." If you put 3 into 10, for instance, you get 3-but what do you do with the number left over? Papa said to throw it away, and Mamma said to save it till you needed it. But Roosevelt wasn't so sure. After all, he had been put- ting one dream into another for as long as he could remember, and there always seemed to be a dream left over. .Roosevelt dreamed of living in one place where he could get to know people and not be an outsider. But he knew that a migrant worker's family, moving from crop to crop, living off the seasons, couldn't afford such hopes, unless some- thing important happened, something like Providence! But all through the sum- mer, through beans at Quimby's Quarters and more beans and tben corn at Willow- brook, Providence seemed a long time coming-until one day Manowar, Digger Burton's resourceful handy-boy, ttlrned up again. Maybe that was Providence operating. For by apple-picking time in Macintosh County , things looked like they just might work out for the Grady family-and Manowar, too-after all. Louisa R. Shotwell knows intimately the problems and life of migrant workers. In this engaging and sympathetic por- trayal of a lively Negro family, her first book for children, she has written a memorable story.
