"Ringgold recounts the dream adventure of eight-year-old Cassie Louise Lightfoot, who flies above her apartment-building rooftop, the 'tar beach' of the title, looking down on 1939 Harlem. Part autobiographical, part fictional, this allegorical tale sparkles with symbolic and historical references central to African-American culture. The spectacular artwork resonates with color and texture. Children will delight in the universal dream of mastering one's world by flying over it. A practical and stunningly beautiful book."--(starred) Horn Book.

I chose this book because it was recommended for children 5-9. My very intelligent 5 year old had to have MANY words defined for him and got little out of the story. I'm a social studies teacher, and when he recently noticed the difference in skin color, I sought out a book on civil rights to help him understand what had happened and how we are all the same. This book would have been much more appropriate for a 9 year old than for him.

My 4 year old son is really interested in history and has latched on to the story about Martin Luther King Jr. and how he changed the world. This story about Rosa Parks tells the whole story about how she came to be an activist and the impact her single act of passive resistance had on the civil rights movement. My son loved it when he could recognize King in the story. The talking bus makes this story magical and really appealing to children, my son will get it off the bookshelf and ask for it to be read to him.

This is a classic picture book, based on a contemporary art masterpiece with a wonderful story behind it. Nearly all children (and their caregiving adults) will enjoy this empowering story about imagination, love, and finding enchantment no matter where we live.

The best scenario: The child has been to a museum and viewed the quilt "Tar Beach" or has spent a summer evening on the roof of a New York City building that doesn't have air conditioning and knows that there is no actual beach in the book. That is not an inference a child would make on his or her own.
As neither of these things are likely, I found that there was a lot of peripheral information needed for a child of 9 to enjoy and understand the book. We looked at Faith Ringgold images on the net, especially her wonderful sculptures, so that one got the idea of who she is. I explained why a person building a bridge would be nicknamed a "half-breed indian" and what a "union" is and why that would be important. I was reading with a black child who recently arrived from her first home which was in England. She didn't know that African Americans were formerly known as colored, nor that there had been restrictions in America for African Americans (or in her case, British Americans of African origin). I probably should have begun with the Michael Venezia Book on Faith Ringgold which would have been more biographical in general, and then, later, to "Tar Beach" which was about the artist's relationship to that one work of art.
So, this is a good book, which needs adult guidance. The little girl for whom I bought the book liked it and it helped her understand how her grandpa, who now lives in Miami, grew up as a little boy in Harlem.

My 7 year old read this book as one of this projects for February 2013
Black History month and loved it. He has quite the imagination so the
thought of a bus talking thrilled him. He had actually seen this bus in
Detroit's Henry Ford Musuem, so it made the story more relevant to him.
Great way to couple discussion of today's current events on news about
some states' efforts to limit voting rights in 2013 with this
historical lesson that showed when people limited rights to eat at lunch counters
and to ride buses. Illustrations are great engaging. Highly recommend it.

I love this book! I take it everywhere I go! I am a fifth generation textile artist. My family makes quilts and sews clothes. The quilts are BEAUTIFUL and the young girl is inspiring. I met Faith Ringgold at an art quilt conference in Madison, Wisconsin years ago given by the education department at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She was very encouraging and warmly supportive. I also work as a registered nurse and I have bought her books for my pediatric patients. I highly recommend this book!

I have looked for this book for years but couldn't think of the name of it. The imagery is fascinating and just like I remember as a girl (from reading rainbow). Happy I can share this with my daughter????

Great little book for kids, and adults, no matter what race can appreciate the childhood memories.
