Freedom in Congo Square by Carole Boston Weatherford, Illustrated by R. Gregory Christie

3.25ish stars.

Weatherford is a talented picture book author. She picks worthy, informative subjects and does them justice. I like her rhyming in this book and the way she sensitively but boldly addresses the subject matter. 113 more words

Du Iz Tak? by Carson Ellis

4.5ish stars.
