it was amazing

Oh I love this book! Charles R. Smith Jr. has used sepia photographs to illustrate Langston Hughes classic poem "My People". The book is so lovely and welcoming. The pre-schoolers loved it at story time. The brown faces and smiles are beautiful. When I was showing the children the end pages a little Asian girl sitting in front goes pointed up and said, "That girl looks like me." :) I was pleased to see that all the children at story time could relate to the book. (Note that the book is very short (1 minute or so) so if you use it for story time you might want to read it twice.)
