“The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.”
Mark van Doren
These are the two books I pulled from our shelves to display at the front desk this morning...
I love Long and Nelson's art. I will have to get these books from the library and spend some time with them.
I Love this Kadir Nelson book. He is amazing! Great choices.
I haven't seen all the Kadir Nelson book, but some & it's lovely. But I really love Of Thee I Sing, can't wait to get it a few years from now for my granddaughters. It's so special. You are wonderful to buy these for your class, Tara. I wonder if others realize how much teachers spend for their students?!
Just saw snippets of Barak Obama on our news as he was inaugurated. He speaks well and that book to his daughters looks like one to I'd like to pursue. We non Americans admire Barak Obama!
Such timely gorgeous books. I am a huge huge fan of Kadir Nelson - did you know that he's coming here to Singapore for a talk on February? Bound to be fun. Sadly, I'd miss it. :( Too many things going on at the same time. The Loren Long book also looks real nice. :)
Great recommendations, Tara. Aren't the illustrations wonderful?!
