Let it shine by Andrea Davis Pinkney and illustrated by Stephen Alcorn was an inspiring book about black women through out history and the impact they made for themselves and others. They set examples and gave courage to other women during the civil right to allow their voices to be heard. Each woman, of the ten, has facts about their lives such as birth and death dates on their front pages. I thought this book would be great in the classroom when teaching either about the civil rights or role models. This is a great book for boys and girls to read. It tells the stories of their lives and how they over came diversity. This is a great book for teaching diversity. I thought there was some good vocabulary for students to learn from this book, such as generosity, Free speech, discrimination, and prejudice. This book has many details about these women such as Biddy Mason, Harriet Tubman, and Rosa Parks' lives. The age range for a reader of this book would be fourth and fifth grade. It would tie in their history or social studies curriculum.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
