In exuberant verse and stirring pictures, Patricia Hruby Powell and Christian Robinson create an extraordinary portrait for young people of the passionate performer and civil rights advocate Josephine Baker, the woman who worked her way from the slums of St. Louis to the grandest stages in the world. Meticulously researched by both author and artist, Josephine's powerful story of struggle and triumph is an inspiration and a spectacle, just like the legend herself.

 Little Wares Thoughts: Telling real stories about real people who have struggled and triumphed is essential for your little ones. In reading books about people like Josephine Baker, we expand our little one's views of the world greatly. And of course, anything illustrated by Christian Robinson is a favorite! Ideal for 10+ year olds as this does contain a page depicting slavery that may need to discussed as a family.
