Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Moroughan
Part of the "Childhood of Famous Americans Series," this book chronicles the life of Mahalia Jackson. Mahalia's childhood was one of poverty and hard labor. In spite of her family situation, she keeps the joy of song in her heart. As a young lady, Mahalia moves to Chicago to live with two aunts. It is in Chicago that this young woman begins her singing career. In the midst of the varied opportunities that come her way, she decides to sing only gospel songs. The book reveals Mahalia's unswerving desire to sing of God's glory in spite of her much needed chances to sing for fame and fortune. In speaking of her long singing career, the book is long on detail, but short on dialogue. At times dialogue appears forced and sometimes choppy. The book also lacks helpful, nonfiction navigators such as bibliographic citations, indexes or attribution. Most of the events portrayed here are, however, corroborated by other biographies of Jackson's life. Overall, this is a good retelling of this courageous woman's life. It is presented in a form that is accessible to middle readers.
