Book Review: We Troubled The Waters by Ntozake Shange and Paintings by Rod Brown
Link @ Publisher:
I first have to express the power that this book has on the reader. The bold and almost touchable pictures exude emotion---passion. On each page is a poem sharing the history of civil rights, the feelings of African Americans, the leaders that gave their all for freedom, the everyday life of African Americans.
There are a couple of photographs that could be too disturbing for a young child. My 7 year old granddaughter would be upset by them, but then explanation will be necessary to any child being read this book.
