National Reading Month: Educator Barnes Reads – When I’m Am Old with You

When I Am Old with You by Angela Johnson is a Coretta Scott King Honor Book.   I became sentimental the first time I read this book.  This book follows a little black boy who is thinking about all the activities he is going to do with his grandfather when he gets older just like him.  When I was a child, I used to dream of all the places I wanted go with my grandmother when I entered adulthood and when she passed away when I was 14, I realized those dreams would never become reality.  Even though this book made me sad, I loved it because it shows the importance of the grandparent and grandchild relationship.

Check out me reading the book in the video below.
