Followers of the North Star: rhymes about African American heroes, heroines, and historical times

Book Cover
Average Rating
Children's Press,
Pub. Date:
Through poetry (a child-centered, child-responsive format), these beautifullyillustrated, multicultural books tell the story of many courageous Americans -- African Americans, Latino Americans, Native Americans, and Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent -- women and men who followed their dreams to create a better life...not just for themselves, but for others as well. Although their experiences often were difficult, they did not allow prejudice and discrimination to thwart their progress. They have helped build our nation, defend it, and lead it into the 21st century.

Poems recogize the lives of Benjamin Banneker, Harriet Tubman, the Buffalo Soldiers, Leontyne Price, and others.
