  • We Are The Ship: A Seven Year Journey of the Heart | Carle Museum
    the field in breathtaking action shots This awe of the ballplayers is echoed in Nelson s voice as he gushes about meeting actual Negro League players Buck O Neil and Walt McCoy After doing so much research through books photographs and newspapers for Nelson meeting these historical heroes was like meeting Abraham Lincoln after writing a book report on him He shared photographs of them together and sound recordings of their conversations with the audience Through these personal interactions Nelson was finally able to tackle writing his first book text He admits that the prospect of writing the book as well as illustrating it left him pleased but also petrified because he didn t feel like a writer Inspired by a quote from Nikki Giovanni There is no such thing as writer s block there s just lack of information Nelson relied on his dedicated research and pure love of history and the game to help bring the text of the book together Through the conversations with O Neil and McCoy he realized that he had to capture their voice and tell the story as if these players collectively are telling their story and speaking together to the reader He went on to talk about his more recent venture in writing and illustrating with his award winning 2011 book Heart and Soul He explained that he wanted to tell the American story from the African American perspective and like writing We Are The Ship with players like Buck O Neil in mind he wrote Heart and Soul through the voice of a 102 year old narrator whose life and family s lives paralleled the story of America In this way Nelson explains all of our lives and our family s lives are the American story and America s history is the story of how they all intertwine He spoke about his passion for taking stories that are not necessarily positive and turning them into something beautiful and palatable The ability to create beauty and share the light inside of us is Nelson says human kind s greatest gift Photo by Kristin Angel Kadir Nelson Jerry Pinkney and Tony DiTerlizzi Photo by Kristin Angel Following Saturday s presentation Nelson gave a wonderful personal tour of his gallery followed by a book signing Photo by Kristin Angel Photo by Kristin Angel For more about Kadir Nelson s visit including a wonderful tour and presentation he gave on Friday to students from the Maurice Donahue Elementary School in Holyoke as part of NEA grant programming visit MassLive s website There s a wonderful video of the visit as well If you missed the chance to meet Kadir Nelson he ll be back with us on Sunday April 1st for an event with Sharon Robinson daughter of ballplayer great Jackie Robinson and Simon Scott Hope to see you there by Eliza Brown Tags african americans baseball heart and soul history kadir nelson negro league baseball picture books sports we are the ship This entry

  • George Washington's Birthday: A Mostly True Tale | Carle Museum
    s a national holiday McNamara and Blitt cleverly play with fact and fiction throughout the book McNamara weaves in familiar facts and legends about George Washingon such as the story of the cherry tree and throwing a stone all the way across the Rappahannock river Little asides on each page act as disclaimers telling readers what is fact and what is myth offering insight and often more detail about George Washington s bright future Blitt s illustrations play off of these facts and myths Where a factoid states that George Washington never wore a wig he puts the 7 year old in a white wig which comically shifts and falls on in various states of the boy s activities The text and illustrations are packed with little nuances of humor for the reader to pick up on Sometimes subtle like when George mutters under his breath calling his older half brother a tyrant to other times being a bit more blatantly funny such as the headlines in the newspaper that George s father reads Cherry Tree Mystery Solved and Don t Axe Don t Tell Repealed Perhaps my favorite illustration is the hilarious one on the back cover of an older and more familiar looking George Washington wearing a party hat blowing a party horn Party on George Adults and children alike will appreciate the different levels of humor in this book while learning facts and debunking popular myths If you re interested in hearing illustrator Barry Blitt talk a bit about the book he was interviewed by Terry Gross for NPR s Fresh Air recently You can listen online here Our gratitude to author Margaret McNamara who is donating a portion of the proceeds from this book to The Carle Museum A reason to party indeed Pick up your copy online here by Eliza Brown Tags biography funny george washington history picture books president presidents day united states This entry was posted on Wednesday February 22nd 2012 at 9 45 am and is filed under Books for Ages 3 6 Books for Ages 6 12 Recommended Books You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Eliza Brown Categories A Closer Look 1 Authors Illustrators 50 Book Finder 4 Book Lists by Theme 65 Books for Ages 0 3 35 Books for Ages 3 6 86 Books for Ages 6 12 37 Books for Teens Adults 10 Books We Love 42 Books Holiday Seasonal 17 Books Non Fiction 5 Books Poetry 3 Bookselling 15 Caterpillar Reviews 1 Children s Book Industry News 38 Events at The Carle 107 Exhibitions at The Carle 18 Friday Favorite 7 Gift Ideas 6 Giveaways 24 Just for Fun 11 Media 11 Musings 28 Picture
