Oh Lord, I Wish I Was a Buzzard (rev. ed.)
Polly Greenberg (au); Aliki (il)
From dawn to dusk, a little girl & her brother & father harvest cotton during the sweltering crop season. Imagining her way through the endless day, she wishes to be anyone else or anywhere else -- a snake curved up & cool, a butterfly bouncing from blossom to blossom, a buzzard going round & round in the sky. But as sunset approaches, a special treat awaits -- as well as the most cherished reward of a parent’s hard-earned approval. The rhythmic, easy-to-read text & the striking, sun-soaked full-color illus. together make an unforgettable tale -- part story, part song, & all poetry. Based on a childhood memory by Gladys Henton, who grew up in the Mississippi delta, this story reflects everyone’s wish to escape the arduous & to be as free as a bird.
