Explanation:

The novel "The Watsons Go to Birmingham" by Christopher Paul Curtis revolves around the lives of the Watson family. Narrated by the second child of the family Kenny, the story tells of the family's trip to Grandma Sands' place in Birmingham, Alabama.

Mentioned in the very first line of the start of the story, the narrator describes the setting as being a rather cold Saturday morning. The setting can be known through his description which allows us the readers to picture what it was like. Kenny states that the day was like "One of those days that when you breathed out your breath kind of hung frozen in the air like a hunk of smoke and you could walk along and look exactly like a train blowing out big, fat, white puffs of smoke". This provides the perfect picture for the readers to know about the setting of the place the narrator and his family were at.
