DESCRIPTION:

Clever Precious never falls for the Boo Hag's half-baked disguises (the Boo Hag "aine too smart") and her family is proud to find her at home safe and sound. A young African-American girl named Precious has a stomachache, so she has to stay at home alone while the whole family leaves to plant corn. That night, as Precious hums her victory song in bed, the reader is asked to look just outside her window have we really seen the end of Boo Hag? Kyrsten Brooker's wonderfully expressive, mixed-media collage illustrations shine with as much humor, mot

"Whatever You Do." according to The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers. During cotton planting season, everyone in Precious' family is needed to work in the fields. But on this particular day, Precious isn't feeling well and must stay at home alone. Her mother, nervous about leaving her daughter home alone for the first time, rattles off a list of rules for her daughter to abide by, the most important rule being that under no circumstances should Precious let anyone into the house. Her brother further warns her about Pruella, a Boo Hag who is a strange and tricky creature who tries to fool children and get them to let her into their homes. He further warns that if Pruella gets into the house, Precious will be . Ulyyf said I love this.. Precious is a real heroine, being brave and clever and - thankfully - sensible. She doesn't let anybody into the house, which is just the way it should be.

Also, the characters do not speak Standard American English but use a nonstandard dialect - "Boo Hags aine too smart", for example. This does not concern me - I think it's better to expose children to a wide variety of speech patterns - but if it is an issue for you, again, read before you buy.. Wonderful Book!! B. Youngblood Never let strangers into the house! Mind your manners! Always tell the truth! This book teaches age-old childhood lessons in a fun way. When her big brother warns her about the Boo Hag, "She's tricky and she's scary and she tries to make you disobey yo' mamaPruella is strange from head to toe. She aine none too smart, got no manners, hates clean water, can change her shape, and tells whoppers." Precious has no idea how tricky a Boo Hag can be. With quick wit (and hilarious sing-song taunts) Precious teaches the Boo Hag a lesson she won't soon forget.I fell in love with this book the first time I read it. As a Media Specialist, I have used
