3.0 von 5 Sternen Especially for those using this for Lit
I'm a 14 yr old who did this bk for Lit this year. This bookwas the better of my two Lit texts, the other being "The ClayMarble". Again, as in the situation of TCM, this book was written for children aged 7-12, and not for 14 year-olds. The character development was pretty bad, with mostly stereotypes, but this made character study a breeze. This book points...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not an ordinary book, 24. Februar 2006
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
This thrilling novel is a good example that learning can be a great pleasure. M.D. Taylor has managed to describe the situation of a black family in the 1930s. Not only does it inform about segregation and discrimination, but also how small, colored children experience injustice as well as racism. Moments when these children are confronted with the problems caused by their skin color, are very moving because these children cannot understand why they are treated so badly. And furthermore the book shows how people, before the Civil Rights Movement led by Martin Luther King, had resisted the racist system.
All in all, it's a book which is worth to be read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book, very interesting, 11. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
The story is set in the 1930's in Mississippi and that is a place that is hard for a black child to grow up in. The story centres on the Logan family, a black family that is struggling to survive in the 1930's. A nine-year-old of the Logan family, Cassie, tells the story. The Logan family has land of its own which means that they are very lucky because in that time most people didn't have land of their own, they used land of someone else and had to pay them for it. The land hadn't always been Logan land, Cassie's grandpa had bought it during Reconstruction and the son of the former owner is trying to get it back. This is only one of the many problems in the book but it is one of the biggest. Most of the problems in the book have something to do with the fact that the Logan family aren't going to give up their land. I really liked the character Cassie in this book. I especially began to like her when she made a fight with the shopkeeper in Strawberry, she was really shocked when she was called a "Ni**er". Cassie grows up together with her three brothers, Little Man, Stacey and Christopher-John, they do many things together and never let one of them do anything by themselves, they support each other always. I am not going to tell you more about it's contents because I think that you have to read the book yourself because only then you will know what I am talking about. You would then see for yourself what a fantastic book this is. When I had read the Author's Note I became really curious about the rest of the book. I liked the way the author, Mildred D. Taylor had written her first part. It didn't take me a long time to read the book because it was very interesting. I had learned about that time in Mississippi during my history lessons, but I had never read a book about it. Now that I have read about it I would also like to read the sequels "Let the Circle Be Unbroken" and "The Road to Memphis" because I am curious what would happen after this book: would the Logan family be able to keep their land?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Powerful book for adolescents learning about courage, 25. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
Mildred D. Taylor has given adolescent readers a powerful account of the Great Depression and the economic hardships it placed on many families, particularly blacks. As seen through the eyes of the Logan family, students learn about the inequalities between blacks and whites, beginning with the four Logan children being splattered by mud from a school bus that transported white children only. A further indignity occurs when the Logans are given dirty, tattered textbooks that have been discarded by the school for whites.
Much of what Taylor describes in this novel packs a strong punch for adolescents. Further, to fully understand the story's context, students need to understand a good deal of U. S. history, specifically, the Great Depression, the Restoration, the sharecropping system, and segregation practices in the south during this period. Yet, teachers and students who take on the challenge will be well rewarded. Teachers and administrators in the Boston Public Schools have been so impressed by the powerful themes in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, that they have selected it as one of six core novels for sixth graders as part of the Max Warburg Courage Curriculum. The other five novels are: Taking Sides, Number the Stars, Bridge to Terabithia, So Far from the Bamboo Grove, and Maniac Magee. As with Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, each novel addresses the theme of courage--different types of courage, what it takes to act courageously, and how even small acts of courage can have enormous consequences in everyday life.
As an Educational Consultant for the Courage Curriculum, I highly recommend Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. Taylor does not speak down to students. Instead she presents them with genuine characters in a drama that reflects the story-telling tradition she was steeped in as a child.

4.0 von 5 Sternen pretty alright..., 10. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
Old Missisippi dust swelling with each step drifting back upon Christopher John's new shiny black shoes and the cuffs of his corduroy pants by lifting each foot high before setting it gently down again. Always meticously neat, six year old Little Man never allowed dirt or tears of stains to mar anyhting he owned. The story by Mildred D. Taylor, starts off as the first day of school. Little Man, just begining his school career, found prospects of him intriguing. As heading to school walking down the dusty raod, Christopher John opens the scene by talking about his dad's job. He was working on railroads, away from his children. That's how hard it was for them when they couldn't even make half of dozen what other people made. Living through racism in town, school, and everywhere. Well, many situations were about racism. Like when Little Man recieved text books in school, he was the only one with a poor quality book as he was also the only black kid in school. Next thing they know, his papa's home! He also brings a friend with him who will work for them, and was very helpful because of his muscular, tall, strong man. Seasons changed as time changed. Rainy days have passed and Little Man waited for a storm to clean the city. But it was the opposite as a huge flame takes over a neighborhood house. Next school year starts off when Cassie bumps into a white girl, and the white girl tells him to apologize but he doesn't. It was obvious they didn't apologize at each other because they didn't want to show shame on their race by apologizing to other that they hate. So, since the racism thing that caused ignorance and others, for example, Christopher John at a school dance party where he gets made fun of by a white boy, he and Cassie went to place which provides things for poor people. They went there to by a gun for protection. Christopher John was going over why a gun is needed, and how it's used. Now they realize what racism is all about. Like their papa getting in trouble for no reasons ! just because of the skin color. That's why later on he lost his job. So, then his family falls in trouble with money. But they decide to keep living through without borrowing. I think this book is not the best but good. The book starts to getting into things in the middle with the racism. As I wrote an essay about racism, I learned more on how it feels like being teased because of their race. This book tought me things, and found it interesting because it was a subject that I like. I recommend this book to all readers, and people who think racism is funny.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I USE THIS IN CLASS BEFORE READING TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, 5. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
Teaching in a primarily white school district(which is just a fact, not a problem), I enjoy teaching novels that bring knowledge of various groups' struggles, beliefs, and similarities that lead to the fact that "we are not as different as some choose to think." In teaching Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird, I felt that my students felt sorry for Tom Robinson, but we needed to have a better understanding of where Tom was coming from. The two novels are very similar in settings, themes, point of view being that of a young girl, conflicts, and overall emotional impact they have on their readers. Kids love Little Man's strength that stretches beyond his size. They admire Stacey's confidence and loyalty to his family, friends, and people. Readers view T.J. with hatred, then confusion, and finally sympathy to this lost child...who can be compared with Harper Lee's Tom Robinson. Many of my students can relate to Jeremy Simms, who respects & enjoys the Logan family more than his own. And then there's Cassie, the narrator. Kids find Cassie to be the most complex of the Logans. Taylor presents Cassie as someone who is naive to discrimination(for lack of a better term). Often my students would write that they wished they could jump into the pages of the text and explain to Cassie what was going on so they could save her from further problems, as we see Big Ma do. My kids also wanted to just "give her a big hug." This book is a great read aloud & the sequels to follow are good as well. Let the Circle be Unbroken is #2 and also goes well with Harper's Tom Robinson's fate. The Road to Memphis is #3 and good as well, although I found the first two the best!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read it again and again!, 2. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
I read Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor years ago as a college student studying to be a teacher. Reading it again with my sixth grade students reinforced my belief that Mildred Taylor is perhaps one of the best children's authors we have today. Everyone from age 10 to 99 should read this book. The story centers around the Logan family, an African American family struggling to survive in the turmoil of the 1930's. There are many reasons I love this book. The characters are well developed and believable. We come to know Cassie Logan, the main character and narrator of the book, as she confronts the harsh realities of discrimination. Mildred Taylor created an extremely likable character of Jeremy, a white boy who rejects his own family's behavior toward the Logan family. The plot unfolds slowly, almost deliberately, to provide us with the time to prepare for the stunning climax. One of the most memorable scenes is when the Logan children visit Mr. Berry, a man badly burned by three white men simply because of the color of his skin. Mildred Taylor's description is often difficult to read and yet necessary in order to gain a better understanding of the distruction hatred causes. Although I've never felt this kind of discrimination firsthand, I am grateful to Mildred Taylor for giving me the opportunity to open my eyes to the dark realities that existed back then and indeed, still exist today. Read this book slowly, carefully and again and again. You will not be the same after reading this extraordinary novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Roll Of Thunder Hear My Cry, 26. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
The book that I read was "Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry." The author is Mildred D. Taylor. This book is about a girl named Cassie and her family. It tells about racial injustices and how the family dealt with them. The main idea was that Cassie stood up for herself and what she believed in and didn't let anybody bully her. She had a good self esteem about herself and her color. I like this story because Cassie stands up for herself and doesn't let anyone get her down. I like the author's style of writing and how I can read it and feel the way that Cassie felt. Most parts of this book is exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat, like the fire and the fight with Lillian Jean, a local white bully. This book gives me a better understanding of how difficult and frustrating it was for many people and how hard it was to make money. It gives me some knowledge on how people solved many racial problems during the days of prejudice. In my oppinion this book should not be called "Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry," but it should be "Cassie and the days of Prejudice," because only one scene in the whole book is about the field catching on fire. The rest of the book is about how Cassie felt. In conclusion I think this book would be great for someone who enjoys a lot of action. It is a terrific book and I recommend it to the whole sixth grade.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Good In All of Us, 8. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
How can one not love a book that is full of great characters, and a literary depiction of a harsh historical period? Mildred Taylor's Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry is an excellent book that I have recently been introduced to. The reason I love it so much is because of the way Mildred Taylor describes the relationships between the White and Black races in the book. In a lot of multicultural literature the White race is depicted as the horrible oppressor giving pain to a victimized culture. However, Taylor does something wonderful. She doesn't stick to this idea. Of course she writes about the racist characters and the despicable things they do, but more importantly she gives us characters that are White and truly good, like Mr. Jamison and Jeremy Simms. She also gives us Black characters that are truly good, like the Logan's, and not so nice Black characters. I really enjoyed the chance for a culture, or race, to be both good and bad not just one or the other. In fact I'm planning to place this book in a future lesson plan so the students can discuss the characters and whether they contribute to both the good and bad aspects of this racist period. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about the good that any person can do no matter what race they are. Taylor is a talented writer and I'm excited to read more of her books.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent introduction to the "race problem", 3. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Taschenbuch)
In the tradition of Twain's "Huckleberry Finn", Taylor presents a stirring, racial-gapping story. Through the eyes of a child, readers are hurled into the racial devide of 1933 Mississippi. Taylor teaches truth and promises hope.
On the surface "Roll of Thunder" seems a quaint recollection of childhood memories. Much of the book's humor lies in the imaginative justice of the Logan children when they are confronted with the unfair actions of the rich farmers and their kin. All readers will surely enjoy the kids' way of getting even.
Taylor makes an excellent choice in narrators. Initially, Cassie's youth prevents her from completely understanding the world in which she and her hardworking family lives. However, as her experiences become more meaningful and life threatening, her awareness broadens. Like her mother, Cassie is a teacher; she breaks down racial stereotypes and readers learn racism stems from ignorance.
The novel comes to a fitting, dramatic conclusion. All does not end well as T.J., Cassie's one-time nemesis, seems destined for injustice on the chain gang, or worse, hanging by his neck from a tree. Taylor's greatest attribute as the author of this books is her ability to stay true to the harshness of reality and the certainty of hope.
