Change Has Come: An Artist Celebrates the American Spirit
We cannot recommend this book enough! Have you seen it? We’re not sure who likes it more – us or our kids. It is truly an awesome little book.
Here’s a review by Elizabeth Kennedy at About.com’s Guide to Children’s Books:
“In honor of the inauguration of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States, it seems appropriate to highlight Change Has Come: An Artist Celebrates the American Spirit. Effectively combining the words of Barack Obama and the drawings of award-winning artist and children’s book illustrator Kadir Nelson, this is a small, yet powerful, book. The quotations stress change, the importance of voting, the need to work together, and the fact that, “Together, ordinary people can still do extraordinary things.” Kadir Nelson’s “spontaneous drawings” complement the words of Obama. While published by the young readers imprint of Simon & Schuster, this is definitely a book for all ages, not just children.”
