All rights reserved. This sumptuous anthology gathers into its generous embrace a rich mix of cultural heritages, from Native American and African American to Hispanic, Pennsylvania Dutch, Cajun, Jewish, Shaker, Scandinavian and others.
The resulting medley of folk songs, folklore, prose and poetry is as lovely as an Appalachian patchwork quilt, with each piece a unique but integral part of the whole. Each of 15 Caldecott artists--including Chris Van Allsburg, Barbara Cooney, Donald Crews, Molly Bang and Ed Young--provides stylish illustrations for an entire unit of the book, which is divided chronologically and thematically. Creation stories, pourquoi tales and a Navajo song conjure up America "In the Beginning" Leo and Diane Dillon illustrate this section ; the American revolution, the immigrant experience, slavery, westward expansion, tall tales, ghost stories and baseball all receive their due.
What better way for children to get acquainted with their country's wealth of diversity than through an all-star collaboration like this? All ages.
