Me-Momma-Big-JohnMe and Momma and Big John

by Mara Rockliff and illustrated by William Low

When John’s mother trudges home from her first day as a stonecutter, “She is gray as ashes, from her headscarf to her boots. Even her bouncy beaded earrings have gone dull as dirt.” What’s more, it’s all from cutting just one stone, “and it’s not done yet.” But Momma doesn’t mind the hard work because she’s a stonecutter at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City. | Barnes and Noble | Indi Bound – Indi Store Finder
