  • "Looking Like Me" by Walter Dean Myers — Center for Children's Literature — Carthage College
    Egmont 2009 Father Walter and son Christopher have collaborated previously i e Harlem A Poem named a Caldecott Honor Once again the outcome has been a distinguished book In a large scale form at of individual pictures and text 10 square the images and the words dance on the page The collage art in high intensity color and bold simplified shapes accompany words printed in a sansaraf capital letter font that gives the impression of stamping The high gloss paper energizes the art The unnamed young narrator speaks in catchy rhymed couplets interspersed with a repeated refrain I gave it a bam The narrator s affirmative exploration leads to discovery that he is many things a boy a brother a son a writer a city child an artist a dancer and others One description I know that I m a talker suggest that this would be most effectively presented orally either by a single presenter or by assigning parts to child readers Can we anticipate further top quality picture books from Egmont in addition to the well crafted middle grade fiction which predominates on the list at this point Let s hope so John Stewig Carthage College Center for Children

  • "Queen of the Falls" by Chris Van Allsburg — Center for Children's Literature — Carthage College
    from Bay City Michigan This feisty lady had a difficult time convincing the local barrel maker to undertake the building of a vehicle for the great plunge but perseverance won She supervised the building of the barrel picking out each piece of the thick white oak and designed it to be just big enough to hold herself and a large number of pillows to cushion the ride She then added handles to grab on to and a leather belt to strap herself in securely With the aid of a manager who stirred up interest Annie made that treacherous and torturous ride down Niagara Falls Bruised and sore she emerged from the barrel only to find that despite her appearances at fairs lecture halls and theaters the crowds lost interest when they found out that the lady of Niagara was an old woman Up until the very end this courageous lady was unable to convince the public of her death defying feat Chris Van Allsburg s photo like illustrations in black and white capture every wrinkle and emotion of his characters In an upside down picture inside the barrel we see the details of Annie s face from the tightly squeezed eyes to the preparatory gritting of her teeth and we breathe a sigh of relief when we view again inside the container Miss Taylor s dazed look when the rescuers use a hammer to knock the lid off of the barrel Annie s diminutive size widening waist and puffy face in the end reminds us that there are so many stories waiting to be shared by our seniors and that daring acts do not solely belong to the young Queen of the Falls is a great selection for the older elementary student and for that reluctant middle school reader looking
