Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday #56

Emmanuel's Dream: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu YeboahEmmanuel’s Dream: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah by Laurie Ann Thompson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Inspiring! Emmanuel is born with only one leg. His physical disability makes him seem less than to many people, including his father, who leaves when he was born. Proving that his disability doesn’t make him unable to live a full worthy life, he leads by example, being a provider for his family at a young age and a spokesperson for anyone with disabilities.

This Jazz ManThis Jazz Man by Karen Ehrhardt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The first part is a fun read-aloud. The text is set to the tune of “This Old Man.” This would pair well with Zin! Zin! The Violin! by Lloyd Moss.

I included this as Nonfiction because of the biographies of the nine jazz men featured in each page!

    I know about Emanuel’s Dream, know it will be good, Earl, & thanks for the second book. I love Zin! Zin! The Violin! & This Jazz Man will be good to go with it. There are several jazz books that have come out in recent years. It would be fun to have a group study! Thanks!

    I just pinned Emmanuel’s Dream – I am always looking for multicultural picturebook titles that deal with differently-abled individuals who demonstrate remarkable resilience. Thanks for sharing it.
