This Is the Rope Paperback Book

Jacqueline Woodson-New York Times Bestselling, National Book Award and Newbery Honor winning author-writes a rich story of a family adapting to change as they hold on to the past and embrace the future. With Coretta Scott King Award-winning illustrator James Ransome. Jacqueline Woodson is the 2018-2019 National Ambassador for Young People's Literature

During the time of the Great Migration, millions of African American families relocated from the South, seeking better opportunities. The story of one family's journey north during the Great Migration starts with a little girl in South Carolina who finds a rope under a tree one summer. She has no idea the rope will become part of her family's history. But for three generations, that rope is passed down, used for everything from jump rope games to tying suitcases onto a car for the big move north to New York City, and even for a family reunion where that first little girl is now a grandmother.
