So when the girls hear about the possibility of history being made on November 4, 2008, they plan a special sleepover at Breynas house. Breynas parents and grandparents help to make the night memorable. Grandpa popped popcorn that sounded like tiny crickets dancing, tap, tap, tap. The girls enjoy a wonderful historic night together that ends in the announcement of the First African American President of the United States of America. Award-winning illustrator/artist Jan Spivey Gilchrist creates a stunning picture book using poetic language and vibrant watercolors to depict what became one of Americas most historic moments.
