New kids' books off the truck
We received a bunch of books written and/or illustrated by the amazing Kadir Nelson. The age range is about 4 to 8. There's Henry's Freedom Box about a slave that escapes on the Underground Railroad, and Dancing in the Wings (by Debbie Allen) about a too-tall ballet student. Also, books on everything from baseball to a Paul-Bunyon-like little cowgirl named Thunder Rose.
Wonderful stories and illustrations!
