Editorial Reviews

Review

Starred Review, Booklist, June 2012:
“With a text that stylistically sings yet is packed with information, the book introduces a woman who, though part of the Harlem Renaissance, is not well remembered by history.”

This book is about my Great Aunt and I completely enjoyed it. It is easy to read and understand it was enjoyed by my granddaughter as well.

Format: Hardcover
Renee Watson and Christian Robinson bring Florence Mills to life, pairing mixed media with prose. From her childhood in Washington, DC and New York City, Florence takes the stage from Harlem to London and back again, becoming known as Harlem's Little Blackbird for her sweet singing voice. Children ages 5-8 will be drawn to the mixed media images, as well as this singer's artistic life.

"A beautifully illustrated children's book about Florence Mills and her choice to stay in Harlem and sing. We read it to ourselves, to our grandchildren and highly recommended it to our customers and television viewers."

This was a cute kids book, if you needs to get a little history lesson about Florence Mills. Didn't know anything about Florence prior to reading the book. Good book for elementary kids for a quick reference.
