Sweet, heartfelt middlegrade read about an unexpected friendship between two very different people.
This was my audiobook while working today and it was very enjoyable.
i bought this middle grade novel purely based on the title - my kitty‘s name is Miss Millie ❤️. the novel was so sweet and lovely, just like my girl. set in the south in the 60s, it deals with race, tolerance, and acceptance in a beautiful tale of a displaced 10-year old and her 90+ neighbor, Miss Millie. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
4 STARS - Happy Monday!! I have a new review on my blog. Walking With Miss Millie is a Middle School read that touches on several topics but focuses on the touching bond between a 10-year-old girl and her elderly African American neighbour. It's a good read for Grades 4 and up. My full review: http://thebakingbookworm.blogspot.ca/2017/07/walking-with-miss-millie.html?m=1
Delightful audiobook and story with underlying themes of racial issues and families. Set in the summer of 1968 — a young girl is uprooted from Columbus, OH, to small-town Georgia so her mother can take care of her own elderly mother. A coming-of-age story perfect for adults and middle grade readers. Narrator Catherine Taber is amazing at her characterizations and augmenting the emotional impact of this book.
