Patricia Polacco has done it again She has written such a lovely story so touching and sincere that it gave my tear ducts some exercise We discovered her books a few years ago and have been reading as many as we can find at our local library I love the ethnic diversity and genuine acceptance of this story; color religion and national origin are not ignored or pushed aside but they are embraced by the main characters in the story I love that the Washington family cared for Patricia as one of their own it shows how much our neighbors can become part of our family That's the way it was when I grew up too and I think that in much of America we've lost that connection And I really love that this story is a true tale from Ms Polacco's childhood The pictures of the Washington family that are incorporated into the illustrations really bring the characters alive Overall this was a very sweet tale and we really enjoyed reading it together After reading comments about it on other reviews I went back and saw the illustration of the tattoo on Mr Kodinski's arm I don't remember if we saw it the first time or not but it's the kind of detail that makes Ms Polacco's books so wonderful His religion and time in a concentration camp are not highlighted here but it's a layer that adds depth and meaning to the story This story was selected as one of the books for the February 2012 Friendship reads at the Picture Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at Goodreads This book was also selected as one of the books for the March 2016 Crafts discussion at the Picture Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at Goodreads

What I love so much about Patricia Polacco's works is that her books are mostly based on her real life as a child Well her book “Chicken Sunday” is such a book and it shows the multicultural friendship that Patricia has with two African American boys Stewart and Winston and the story details the three friends' determination to prove their innocence when a group of rough boys threw eggs at Mr Kodinski's shop “Chicken Sunday” is truly one heartwarming book that you should definitely check outAmazing This book is beyond amazing Patricia Polacco has certainly out done herself in writing this book about the importance of true friendship What I really loved about Patricia Polacco's writing is how she shows the multicultural relationship between Patricia and Stewart and Winston as Patricia is Jewish American while Stewart and Winston are African American and these three friends are clearly inseparable as they treat each other like they are brothers and sister a type of relationship you would never find in many children's books I also loved the relationship that Patricia had with Miss Eula as she truly treats Miss Eula like a grandmother especially after hearing that her babushka her grandmother has died some years back and it was truly wonderful seeing the relationship between Miss Eula and Patricia blossom into love I also loved the fact that when Patricia Stewart and Winston all got into trouble they stood by each other no matter how harsh the situation was and that truly showed me how strong their friendship was Patricia Polacco's illustrations are truly magnificent in this book as all the characters are drawn in a realistic and effective way that has actually made me speechless every time I looked at the images I loved the way that Patricia Polacco drew the characters' facial expressions as they ranged from sad to surprised expressions that made the book truly amazing to read My favorite image in this book was of the image of Mr Kodinski looking at some eggs that Patricia and her friends had brought to him and you can see the intense yet surprised expression on his face and that truly made my heart melt with sympathy for him as I can imagine everything he has gone through when he moved away from his homeland I also loved how Patricia Polacco gave Mr Kodinski an old fashioned yet sophisticated look about him as he wears a large black hat a white shirt black suspenders and has a shaggy white beard that truly details his personalityOverall “Chicken Sunday” is a wonderful experience for children who love reading about multicultural friendships and learning about the true meaning of having a family I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since the length of this book might be a bit too much for smaller childrenReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

This wasn’t one of Polacco’s titles that appealed to me as a vegan given that I thought chicken on Sundays was what it would be about and that is part of it But I was able to dissociate enough to put that part in the backgroundThe rest of the story is fabulous Once again this is a story from Polacco’s childhood This Russian Jewish girl and two neighbors who are African American boys in a “solemn ceremony” become sister and brothers The boys’ grandmother is raising them and now she’s Patricia’s grandmother too Patricia sometimes goes to church with the three of them even though their religion is not her religion Their gramma Eula May Walker sang beautifully “like slow thunder and sweet rain”The story revolves around the children trying to save enough money to buy the grandmother an Easter hat she covets every time she sees it in the store window The shopkeeper Mr Kodinski is I think Russian Jewish too What happens to bring the three children close to the shopkeeper and then how they get that hat made me cry myself sillyThe illustrations are lovely and I really liked the decorated eggsIn the back inside cover of the book is a photo of the “siblings” Patricia Stewart and Winston as adults but at a much younger age than the author was at the time this book was writtenI love Polacco’s books that have inter cultural friendshipsEdited to add Oh my gosh I'm even touched I was so engrossed by this story that I neglected to give proper attention to the outstanding illustrations and as I noticed in my Goodreads friend Kathryn's review of this book Yes the shop owner Mr Kodinski is Russian Jewish and one illustration shows a concentration camp number on his arm I reread the book and then I did notice it Having that depicted makes that scenepart of the story even powerful and inspiring Oh I just love this author
