Dottie and Buster's Trip to the Big City is a true story about the author and her nephew as children in the 1940's and their trip to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by train. During this trip, they had the chance to see the nation's capital city and visit historical places in Philadelphia, some of which their playmates may never get to see and will only read about in their school books. The story will introduce readers to a southern African American family, how they lived, loved, and had fun during the time of segregation in the South. As they read, they will be able to explore different cultural environments of people and their way of life in both the North and South. The book is intended for educational and entertainment purposes and will engage children and youths in active reading. They will read and learn about important cities and landmarks, famous people and their accomplishments to our great nation, The United States of America. Dottie's and Buster's Trip to the Big City can be used as a supplemental teaching tool in elementary social studies curriculum and will be readily available to all institutions of learning, e.g. public schools, chartered schools, church schools, colleges, universities, libraries, and bookstores for children, youths, and adults. This book will enable the reader to gain knowledge and understanding of another time era, to experience the benefits of reading a delightful story, and to learn a lesson in American history.
