BOOK DU JOUR - Fifty Cents and a Dream

Young Booker T. Washington

The BOOK DU JOUR is supposed to be about artwork.  In this case Bryan Collier's wonderful drawings.  But I have to say that I love this book.  Jabari Asim really captures the magic of wanting to better yourself.  Of struggling to better yourself.  And he gets across the power of education.  This is a book that has the power to get across to children how important education is.

Highly recommend.
