" At the crosswords was a great read aloud picture book. It's a great read to introduce commitment due to how long the dads were gone. " said.

" Would have loved an authors note explaining the background of the story. " said.

" A group of boys are awaiting their father's return from working in the mines. They wait, and wait, and wait, until finally their father's arrive back home. I would use this book to teach about diversity. " said.

" The book introduces the standard of living in other countries. The author does a great job at showing the life style of villages in Africa. The book shows how sometimes families must go through long periods of separation to survive. The book could be used for a unit on culture and life styles. " said.

" WOW!! this is a beautiful story. I would use this book to teach my children about waiting patiently. Good thing do come to those that wait. These beautiful children waited patiently for their fathers to come home and they came in due time. " said.

" A warm and heartfelt story about children waiting for their fathers to return from the mines. A great story to allow children to enter a completely different - but REAL - reality faces by children in other parts of the world. Wonderful illustrations, also. " said.

" This is a very simple little story, but something about it touched my child when they were 3 - maybe it was just the idea of these kids waiting up for their fathers, that this is something that might connect children no matter where they live or what their situation. My child is now 6 but got very excited when we uncovered this on a bookshelf and wanted me to read it again. I could kind of remember the magic, but it does seem aimed at younger kids, 3 - 5 maybe. " said.

" At the Crossroads by Rachel Isadora wonderfully portrays through the use of vibrant colors and texture the anticipation of South African children gathering to welcome home their fathers who have been away for ten months working in the mines. Written at a 1.9 reading level, this book can be relevant to children not only in South Africa, but all around the world as parents leave for work to support their families. " said.
