Poet: The Remarkable Story of George Moses HortonPoet: The Remarkable Story of George Moses Horton by Don Tate
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Inspiring story of a slave poet who became the first African American to be published in the South. Despite not having the same privileges as his white counterparts, he learned to read and write. He ended up writing poetry for others and used his words to speak out against slavery. A great biography of an otherwise unknown person.

    “Poet” is new to me, and looks like a very inspiring book for kids. I love picture books that don’t just vaguely encourage kids to “follow their dreams” (what does that even mean??), but which give examples of people who actually did follow their dreams, even when it was hard or no one believed in them.

    I love the illustrations in Poet and I appreciated the inspirational text. Many of our teachers use Have You Filled a Bucket Today? It’s been helpful for helping students to become encouragers.
