Angela Johnson - The Leaving Morning

The Leaving Morning

Author: Angela Johnson; Illustrator: David Soman

  • AGES 5 - 7 
  • Genre Realistic Fiction
An African-American family moves from their city apartment into a new home, invoking all the joy, sorrow, anxiety, and hurry of moving day. On moving day, a boy watches for the moving men, has a cup of cocoa in the deli across the street, and leaves lip marks on the window of the apartment before departing for a new home.The feelings of children are invoked in a simple story of the ambivalence of leaving familiar surroundings.
