Synopsis

Honoring Our Ancestors Stories and Paintings by Fourteen Artists by Harriet Rohmer

Through stories, art, and photographs, fourteen outstanding artists remember the ancestors who most touched their lives. Caryl Henry honors his grandmother and America's first Black woman millionaire, Madame C. J. Walker. Nancy Hom's father worked in a Chinese restaurant but possessed the strength of a mighty warrior. Mira Reisberg's Jewish grandparents were killed in the Holocaust, but their spirit helped shape her life. Other artists include Hung Liu, Enrique Chagoya, George Crespo, Judith Lowry, Joe Sam, and Patssi Valdez. This book will inspire children and their families to honor their own ancestors.

Reviews

An excellent teaching tool for those who want to approach their students with the idea that we can communicate with both pictures and words .
