    What a great and Rewarding Book

    The Negro Speaks of Rivers is a Coretta Scott King Award winner. I was taken to several places and times by this book and really enjoyed the illustrations by E.B. Lewis. You can tell how much pride, joy and honor he has and it shows in what he is portraying to the reader. I enjoyed being taken through time, through the eyes of Hugh's from the ancient world to the Congo River and from the Mississippi to Abe Lincoln in New Orleans, and how a soul can speak and reach across the ages and tell such an amazing story, with very few words. This is a great read for anyone who enjoys history and love that is spoken through the soul and through the eyes of someone who has a great way of portraying and giving tribute through the rivers eyes and soul. This book is dedicated to the hero's of the Civil Rights Movement and has a special Illustrator's note in the back of the book. I love this note as much as I did the book, he has said some very special things in honor of Langston Hughes and it truly speaks volumes.
