I enjoyed, Coretta Scott, by Ntozke Shange. I found that the text did not read like poetry, it read like a story. I, personally, am not a fan of poetry. I enjoyed this book because it was about a person in history and I do like the historical fiction genre. I had never seen a book that was based on Coretta Scott, so it was interesting to read about the Civil Rights Movement, from a different perspective. The illustrations by Kadir Nelson are rich, realistic and colorful. Visually the book is amazing. This book can be used to introduce a lesson on the Civil Rights Movement to young children.
