Reviews

TALKIN' ABOUT BESSIE (written by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by E.B. Lewis)
A Coretta Scott King Honor Book
"While fictional, this is a fine piece to use to set a tone or inspire more research into Coleman's life. It could also serve as an exceptional writing model for students." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

I SEE THE RHYTHM (written by Toyomi Igus and illustrated by Michele Wood)
"Wood's vibrant paintings are based in historical detail, and resonate with emotion. The color choices, postures of the figures, as well as the expressions on their faces, reflect various aspects of African-American music; the pictures broadcast joy, innovation, and exuberance in the face of systematic oppression." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

GOING BACK HOME (written by Toyomi Igus and illustrated by Michele Wood)
"Through vivid, mosaiclike paintings, Wood skillfully depicts her African-American family, her rich heritage, and ethnic motifs. ... The full-page, full-color reproductions are arrestingly beautiful." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
