"The Story of Chicken Bone Beach is a children's version of Cheryl's first book, Chicken Bone Beach: A Pictorial History of Atlantic City's Missouri Avenue Beach (Sunbury Press, 2017), which was nominated for a 2017 Literary Award with the Schomburg Center in New York City, used in classrooms at Purdue University and referenced in The Oxford Handbook of American Folklore and Folklife Studies. Cheryl wanted to enlighten a younger generation of important history in America that fills in the gaps of current textbooks and homes. Cheryl believes that awareness brings about the understanding that all history is vital. Cheryl writes about segregation and Jim Crow laws delightfully by focusing the reader's attention on how much the community of African Americans enjoyed and loved their neighborhood despite laws that prohibited Blacks fromm access." -Speckled Egg Press an imprint of Sunbury Press, Inc.

Written by Cheryl Woodruff-Brooks with illustrations by Ophelia Chambliss, 18 pages, paperback
