illustrator They are each beautiful and unique and really show the reader what that person did to make an impact.The author included brief histories of each individual represented within the text at the end of the book She listed their years of life as well as the important change they made during their life After this, there is also a blurb about each illustrator and the historical figure they represented in their artwork within the text of the book.I think this book is extremely impactful, even though it has simple text This would be a great text to use with students to introduce a research unit in fourth or fifth grade It could also be used with younger students, but they might have difficulty understanding the importance of each person represented Because the text is so simple, I think it s important that students engage in discussion or complete research after reading this Our Children Can Soar by Michelle Cook, Illustrated by Various ArtistsCook, Michelle 2009 Our

poem with dates and a quick overview of their accomplishments I used it in my library to support the teachers who had already introduced Biographies to the third graders As I read the pages they were so excited by recognizing people they had already heard of and equally excited to hear about the people they hadn t George Washington Carver was new to most of them, as was Ella Fitzgerald The few who did recognize them as I was ready no felt super special, a proud moment for them I can see many other ways it can be used by teachers And the kids now check it out constantly Highly recommended for all libraries, and all levels I believe it s a great book for even high school kids to see and read, even if it needs to be introduced as an art book I enjoyed reading this picture book In a very

movement.This book also features 12 different African American illustrators The use of different illustrators, as a collaborative effort, also demonstrates a unique connection A brief biography of each and their connection to the person they illustrated, is also included This book is very appropriate for readers in kindergarten through middle school This book can be used to discuss the lives of those included, but the format and style can easily be imitated Students could easily create their own book that shows their family progression through generations, historical figures of the American
