    " Very good portrayal of Booker T. Washington's immense desire to learn. The illustrations are a combinations of collage and watercolor. An illustrator's note at the end of the book further explains some of the illustrations and worth reading to be sure to catch the significance of some of the illustrations. An excellent choice for schools with units on Booker T. Washington. "

    " Booker T. Washington's drive to read, to learn, to succeed, and to share those opportunities with others is portrayed effectively. The concluding pages point out that he was dismissed for years as too accommodating but has more recently been recognized as a fearless and tireless advocate for equality and justice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Kahn | 2/13/2014

    " Gorgeously illustrated, powerful, spare text and stunning design. Sure hope the Caldecott Committee is looking at this one long and hard. I loved everything about this one from its heft through the feel of the paper, the story of hope and strength. Just beautiful "

    " I like my Kindle a lot. However, when a GORGEOUS book like this comes along with raised lettering in the title, deep, rich colors, script running through the stern portrait of Booker T. Washington, I KNOW books can never be replaced. This biography for children can't be missed. Collier's illustrations are captivating (he illustrated two other favorites of mine, Dave the Potter and Rosa), and Asim's inspiring biography teaches children that with determination and drive, anything can be accomplished. Extra facts, a timeline, and author and illustrator notes at the end should not be overlooked. This is now one of my favorite 2012 picture books. It will definitely win awards! "

    " Beautiful book empathizing the joy and drive for knowledge and education through the tale of a former slave. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 1/24/2014

    " Brian Collier is consistently one of my favorite children's book illustrators. I can't wait for his Pullman porter book to come out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris Odahowski | 1/22/2014

    " How many miles would I walk for an education? I thought about this immediately after reading Jabari Asim's book on the early years of Booker T. Washington. This book can open up a discussion on universal education, young readers will see Washington dream, work and pray for a chance for an education. Bryan Collier takes us to the in the world of young boy's life of difficult work and humble beginnings with a new kind warmth and clarity that collage illustrations sometimes miss. This book is available for check out at the Gadsden County Public Library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/11/2014

    " I found it interesting that Booker T. Washington was criticized for comprpmising. He seems like he was a good model for thinking win-win. He achieved much without bringing others down. no wonder he titled his second book "Up from Slavery", he believed in thinking up rather than dragging down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 12/27/2013

    " Bryan Collier is one of my favorite illustrators. He seems to choose books with awe inspiring messages as illustrated in this amazing story. Story and illustrations are discussion worthy. The end notes carry important information about the story and illustrations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn Trlak-Donahue | 12/11/2013

    " Beautiful illustrations and a story that didn't try to take on too much- but was interesting. So many non-fiction kids' books are too fact based and turn kids off. This struck a fine balance. "
