Child of the Civil Rights Movement
Shelton, Paula Young

Autographed by Raúl Colón

In this Bank Street College of Education Best Children's Book of the Year, Paula Young Shelton, daughter of Civil Rights activist Andrew Young, brings a child's unique perspective to an important chapter in America's history. Paula grew up in the deep south, in a world where whites had and blacks did not. With an activist father and a community of leaders surrounding her, including Uncle Martin (Martin Luther King), Paula watched and listened to the struggles, eventually joining with her family--and thousands of others--in the historic march from Selma to Montgomery.

Poignant, moving, and hopeful, this is an intimate look at the birth of the Civil Rights Movement.

From the exhibition Children Should Be Seen: The Image of the Child in American Picture-Book Art, November 15, 2007 - March 9, 2008

114 pages, 83 illustrations

From "Acknowledgments" by H. Nichols B. Clark, Director:
"Children Should be Seen brings together eighty-three works of original illustration art by eighty-four artists in a comprehensive survey of the best American picture-book art for the years 1997-2007. The exhibition is organized around the theme of the changing image of the child in the American picture book and thus in contemporary American culture. A major goal of the exhibition is to prompt lively discussion on the tone and texture and very quality of life of the present generation of American children, and to consider the role that illustrated books can play in a culture that is increasingly saturated with post-industrial-age new media."

Selected as an honorable mention in the Exhibition Catalogs division of the AAM Museum Publications Design Competition for Children Should Be Seen: The Image of the Child in American Picture Book Art, designed by Rita Marshall. (http://www.aam-us.org)

Cupid and Psyche
Craft, M Charlotte

Psyche is the most beautiful woman in the world, yet the oracle at Delphi foresees she will fall in love with a creature feared even by the gods themselves.

Magically, Psyche finds herself in a magnificent castle fitted with sweet music, attentive servants, and a charming but invisible host. Soon she falls in love with this man she has never seen, but in a moment of doubt she betrays his trust. To win back his love, Psyche must show that she is as brave as she is beautiful by performing three impossible tasks.

Perhaps the greatest love story of all, Cupid and Psyche is unsurpassed in its richness and drama. Marie Craft's lively, suspenseful retelling of this classic Greek myth will appeal to young and old alike. And these legendary lovers have inspired forty lush luminous paintings by award-winning artist Kinuko Craft.

Lavishly illustrated and thrillingly told, here is a book to be treasured forever.

Daniel Finds a Poem
Archer, Micha
Stunning collage art full of rich color, glorious details, and a sense of wonder--reminiscent of the work of Ezra Jack Keats--illustrate this delightful story celebrating the poetry found in the world around us.

What is poetry? Is it glistening morning dew? Spider thinks so. Is it crisp leaves crunching? That's what Squirrel says. Could it be a cool pond, sun-warmed sand, or moonlight on the grass? Maybe poetry is all of these things, as it is something special for everyone--you just have to take the time to really look and listen. The magical thing is that poetry is in everyone, and Daniel is on his way to discovering a poem of his own after spending time with his animal friends. What is poetry? If you look and listen, it's all around you!

David Wiesner & the Art of Wordless Storytelling - Autographed

The first publication to show the creative process of David Wiesner, one of the world's most acclaimed children's book illustrators

A master of storytelling through pictures and three-time winner of the Caldecott Medal, David Wiesner (b. 1956) is one of the most highly acclaimed book illustrators in the world. This handsome volume is the first to examine his creative process and his many sources of inspiration. The book features dozens of lavish color plates, from early work to the exquisitely wrought watercolors that are the basis of his  best-known books, along with pages excerpted from his forthcoming first graphic novel, Fish Girl. Also included are works by some of the artists most influential to Wiesner, including Marvel comic book legends, Surrealist and avant-garde masters, and mid-20th-century graphic artists. While illustration has often been marginalized in the world of fine art, the vibrant interplay among paintings, prints, comic books, graphic novels, iconic 20th-century films, and cartoons in Wiesner’s art gives evidence to the complexity of the American tradition of picture book illustration.
