Dual narrators bring reverence and joy to this audiobook about the June 19 anniversary known as Juneteenth. When portraying Mazie, Tyla Collier's voice is youthful and impatient as she suffers the limits of common childhood restrictions. Then, Rhett Samuel Price's deep, rich voice explains to Mazie how her enslaved ancestors had to wait two years after the Emancipation Proclamation to become free. Cheerful music provides an uplifting background as listeners hear a broad history of Juneteenth commemorations from then until now. The audiobook is engaging on its own, but families may want to view the illustrations as they listen to experience the full impact of the Juneteenth celebrations that are part of the story.
