    1. This book by Gloria Pinkney, illustrated by Jerry Pinkney follows the journey of Ernestine and picks up where The Sunday Outing ends (Another Gloria P. book). Ernestine recognizes her uncle June Avery right away, he brought her flowers and looked just like the photo her mom showed her (At the train station). They are in Lumberton, North Carolina and her uncle lives on a farm. They hopped in his pickup and headed to the farm where Aunt Beula and Cousin Jack were waiting to meet her. Then the stor [...]

When Ernestine takes her first steps off the train, she feels right at home in the green countryside, working on the family farm, and spending time with her aunt, uncle and cousin.

    3. This book is a fictional story about a young girl traveling from a big city in the north to a farm town in the south to go visit her aunt and uncle. Tickets for the train are very expensive so she is sent down south by herself without her parents. She is going to the town where she was born and where her grandmother lived.

    4. Eight year old Ernestine is returning to her families farm to visit her Uncle, Aunt, and Cousin who live there still. Ernestine is excited to ride in the back of the pickup truck, sleep in her mama's old room, and meet her cousin's goats, but when Cousin Jack sees her, he pins her as a "city girl". A story about returning to your roots and about not judging a person by where they come from, this book has lovely illustrations and the characterization is made rich by dialects used. The contrasting [...]


    5. Back Home by Gloria Jean Pinkey is a storybook involving an african american girl who travels to North Carolina to sleep in the house where her mom grew up, and to visit her birthplace. The story allows the reader to compare and contrast their life with Ernestine's by reflecting back on how they grew up. It shows the reader that every person has their own story, depending on the culture and location they were raised in. I would recommend this book for children ranging from kindergarten to second [...]


    6. This book is about a girl that travels to North Carolina, where she was born. Now she lives in the city. As soon as she gets there she feels like home, and experience the good nature. All she wants to do is to be friends with her cousin “Jack” and experience the farm life. She liked spending time with her family and doing the things her family do every day. Use this 2nd grade; the children can compare city and country life. Do any of the children have family that doesn’t live at the same p [...]


    7. This is a beautiful book written by Gloria Jean Pinkney and illustrated by her husband Jerry Pinkney. The story is about Ernestine who lives with her family "up North" but North Carolina is where she was born and raised. The story follows Ernestine as she travels down to visit her aunt and uncle in the countryside. Gloria manages to write this story in a way where there is no negative stereotypes towards the African American culture and the illustrations create amazing visuals to go along with t [...]


    8. Even though Ernestine lives with her family up North, "back home" is in North Carolina, the place where she was born and where her mama grew up. Ernestine feels right at home in the countryside, working on the family farm, and spending time with her aunt, uncle, and cousins. This book is somewhat of a picture book and the pictures help enhance the story. There are no negative stereotypes in the story and it captures children's interests, especially if they can relate to ever going somewhere and [...]


    9. I like everything the Pinkneys write and illustrate--this is a good story, simple in many ways, yet highlights the geographical differences separating many African American families, as many moved North during the Great Migration, from those who stayed in the South. Above all, though, this is a story about family--getting to know those we don't know or remember, and learning new traditions and stories about previous generations.


    10. This is a story about a young girl who finally gets to leave her hometown in Philadelphia to meet her relatives in North Carolina that she has only heard about. This story would be a good way to maybe introduce a family unit and allow children to share their experiences in meeting new family relatives. This is also the sequel to The Sunday Outing.


    11. This is the sequel to the book "The Sunday Outing" that is about how Ernestine's trip to visit her family. She is from the city so seeing what the country life is all about is very interesting and fun to her. She becomes good friends with her cousin Jack that is about her same age.




    12. This was a fun book in the way that Ernestine was able to relive her mother's childhood fun. It was a different sort of touch by reading about the southern traditions and experiences.



    13. A new place, a family that she hasn't seen in forever, and a cousin that just won't seem to be nice to her. This is a great story for students to try and imagine what they would feel like if they were in the character's shoes.


    14. Back Home follows the journey of Ernestine and picks up where The Sunday Outing ends. Ernestine recognizes her uncle June Avery right away, he brought her flowers and looked just like the photo her mom showed her. They are in Lumberton, North Carolina and her uncle lives on a farm. They hop in his pickup and headed to the farm where Aunt Beula and Cousin Jack were waiting to meet her. Then the story goes on to tell us all the farm like activities Ernestine did with her cousin, like ride a goat, [...]
