As a young boy growing up in North Carolina, Romare Bearden listened to his great-grandmother’s Cherokee stories and heard the whistle of the train that took his people to the North—people who wanted to be free. When Romare boarded that same train, he watched out the window as the world whizzed by. Later he captured those scenes in a famous painting, Watching the Good Trains Go By. Using that painting as inspiration and creating a text influenced by the jazz that Bearden loved, Jeanne Walker Harvey describes the patchwork of daily southern life that Romare saw out the train’s window and the story of his arrival in shimmering New York City. Artists and critics today praise Bearden’s collages for their visual metaphors honoring his past, African American culture, and the human experience. Elizabeth Zunon’s illustrations of painted scenes blended with collage are a stirring tribute to a remarkable artist.This book is the recipient of the 2012 IRA Children's and Young Adults Book Award-Primary Non-Fiction for My Hands Sing the BluesBook Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 9/1/2011Pages: 40Reading Level: Age 6 and Up
Sex remains one of the least comfortable and thus least discussed topics between parents and children.

First created by Planned Parenthood in the 1980s, and taking a simple, factual approach to the subject, the book makes that crucial conversation possible and even enjoyable by encouraging open dialogue; offering clear, correct information; and giving strategies for age-appropriate discussions that neither judge nor frighten. The book discusses feelings, what's normal, how and why the body changes, making sense of love and sex, STDs, and much more. The simple language and illustrations invite young readers to revisit the information if they have not absorbed it all in one sitting.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 5/10/2005Pages: 100Reading Level: Age 9 and Up
