    ABOUT THE BOOK
    GAME CHANGERS: THE STORY OF VENUS AND SERENA WILLIAMS
    by Lesa Cline-Ransome, illustrated by James Ransome
    Venus and Serena Williams. Two peas in a pod. Best friends. Sisters.
    Six days a week they awoke before the sun came up to practice their serves and returns, to learn to run faster and hit harder. They were unstoppable. At age fourteen, Venus played her first professional match. Three years later, it was Serena’s turn. It wasn’t easy. Some tennis fans cheered for these two fresh faces, while those who were unhappy to see two black girls competing in a nearly all-white sport booed and taunted them. But they didn’t let it stop them.
    With vibrant mixed media art, nonfiction superstars Lesa Cline-Ransome and Coretta Scott King Honor winner James E. Ransome share the inspirational story of two tennis legends who were fierce competitors on the courts, but close sisters above all.

    KidLit RADIO: StoryMakers with Duncan Tonatiuh

    KidLit RADIO: StoryMakers with Duncan Tonatiuh

    On this KidLit RADIO podcast, Rocco & award-winning author/illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh chat about Duncan’s unique illustration style which is inspired by Pre-Columbian art and about how his stories honor the past, but are relevant to children now, like his new book SOLDIER FOR EQUALITY: JOSÉ DE LA LUZ SÁENZ AND THE GREAT WAR.
    Watch Duncan on StoryMakers!


    ABOUT THE BOOKS
    SOLDIER FOR EQUALITY: JOSÉ DE LA LUZ SÁENZ AND THE GREAT WAR
    José de la Luz Sáenz (1888–1953)—or Luz—believed in fighting for what was right. Although he was born in the United States, he and his family experienced prejudice because of their Mexican heritage. When World War I broke out, Luz volunteered to join the fight. Because of his ability to quickly learn languages, he became part of the Intelligence Office in Europe. However, despite his hard work and intellect, Luz often didn’t receive credit for his contributions. Upon his return to the US, he joined other Mexican-Americans whom he had met in the army to fight for equality. His contribution, along with others, ultimately led to the creation of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), which is the oldest Latino civil rights organization. Soldier for Equality is based in part on Luz’s diary during the war. It includes a biography of Luz’s later years, an author’s note, a timeline, a bibliography, and an index.
    UNDOCUMENTED is the story of immigrant workers who have come to the United States without papers. Every day, these men and women join the workforce and contribute positively to society. The story is told via the ancient Mixtec codex—accordion fold—format. Juan grew up in Mexico working in the fields to help provide for his family. Struggling for money, Juan crosses over into the United States and becomes an undocumented worker, living in a poor neighborhood, working hard to survive. Though he is able to get a job as a busboy at a restaurant, he is severely undercompensated—he receives less than half of the minimum wage! Risking his boss reporting him to the authorities for not having proper resident papers, Juan risks everything and stands up for himself and the rest of the community.
    ABOUT Duncan
    Duncan Tonatiuh (toh-nah-tee-YOU) is the author-illustrator of The Princess and the Warrior, Funny Bones, Separate Is Never Equal, Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote, Diego Rivera: His World and Ours and Dear Primo.

His artwork is inspired by Pre-Columbian art, particularly that of the Mixtec codex. His aim is to create images and stories that honor the past, but that are relevant to people, especially children, nowadays.

    KidLit RADIO: Read Out Loud THE CRAYON MAN

    KidLit RADIO: Read Out Loud THE CRAYON MAN

    Before the invention of Crayola crayons, most children could only draw in black or white! In this episode of Read Out Loud on KidLit RADIO, author Natascha Biebow reads the colorful, true story of inventor Edwin Binney, THE CRAYON MAN!
    Watch Natascha’s READ OUT LOUD!

    ABOUT the Book
    Celebrating the inventor of the Crayola crayon! This gloriously illustrated picture book biography tells the inspiring story of Edwin Binney, the inventor of one of the world’s most beloved toys. A perfect fit among favorites like The Day the Crayons Quit and Balloons Over Broadway.
    Purple mountains’ majesty, mauvelous, jungle green, razzmatazz…what child doesn’t love to hold a crayon in their hands? But children didn’t always have such magical boxes of crayons. Before Edwin Binney set out to change things, children couldn’t really even draw in color.
    Here’s the true story of an inventor who so loved nature’s vibrant colors that he found a way to bring the outside world to children – in a bright green box for only a nickel! With experimentation, and a special knack for listening, Edwin Binney and his dynamic team at Crayola created one of the world’s most enduring, best-loved childhood toys – empowering children to dream in COLOR! Natascha Biebow (author) Steven Salerno (Illustrator)
    ABOUT Natascha Biebow
    I don’t go anywhere without a book (or usually books), in my purse, in my backpack, tucked in the crook of my arm – IN CASE. Here’s a secret: my greatest fear is being stranded somewhere without a book . . .I was the kind of child who read everything – my dad’s newspaper, the cereal box, the signs on the street.
    I was born in Johannesburg and grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I went to the American school. The kids who went there were from all over the world!
    Most of the books I owned when I was growing up were sent to me for birthdays and Christmases by my grandmother, Granelly, who lived in England. These were treasures that I read up in the bougainvillea tree, where I had a secret perch and no one would disturb me for hours. I woke up early, and read until my family finally got out of bed. I made my mom read The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen over and over again – it made me cry, it was so beautiful. I loved Judy Blume’s Fudge series, Julie of the Wolves, the Narnia books and lots of horse books, including Black Beauty and Misty of Chincoteague. Now, I love to read picture books with my son (and the dog!).
    ABOUT Steven Salerno
    New York City-based illustrator, children’s book author/illustrator, and character designer, Steven Salerno creates striking illustrations for a wide range of editorial and advertising clients. His style flexes between the graphically simple and whimsical, to more realistic, richly textured images, with some having a retro feel.

    KidLit RADIO: What Becomes a Classic? CORDUROY

    KidLit RADIO: What Becomes a Classic? CORDUROY

    Leonard Marcus is back with a new podcast episode of What Becomes a Classic? This time he’s heading to the Museum of the City of New York to meet with Morgen Stevens-Garmon, curator of A City for Corduroy: Don Freeman’s New York. The exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of CORDUROY! Morgen shows us some of Don Freeman’s amazing artwork and offers insight into the way his time in New York City forever shaped his work and storytelling.
    Watch this episode of What Becomes a Classic?

    About the Book
    Don Freeman’s classic character, Corduroy, is even more popular today then he was when he first came on the scene in 1968. This story of a small teddy bear waiting on a department store shelf for a child’s friendship has appealed to young readers generation after generation.
    About Leonard
    Leonard’s pathfinding writings and exhibitions have earned him acclaim as one of the world’s preeminent authorities on children’s books and the people who create them. He is the author of more than 20 award-winning biographies, histories, interview collections, and inside looks at the making of children’s literature’s enduring classics. His reviews and commentary have been featured in the New York Times Book Review, Washington Post, The Horn Book, and on numerous radio and television programs including Good Morning America, All Things Considered, PBS NewsHour, BBC Radio 4, CBC As It Happens, Beijing Television, and Radio New Zealand, among others.
    From The Museum of the City of NY:
    A CITY FOR CORDUROY: DON FREEMAN’S NEW YORK
    Best known today as the creator of the lovable teddy bear Corduroy, Don Freeman (1908–1978) spent over 20 years depicting New York City and its residents before becoming a children’s book author. He moved to New York from California in 1928—just shy of his 20th birthday—with little more than a few sketching supplies and a trumpet. Soon he was using his income from trumpet gigs to fund his studies at the famous Art Students League. Freeman sketched everything he saw, wherever he was. His eye was profoundly democratic, embracing the varied characters and street life of New York. He was also a lifelong lover of the stage, and his theater sketches launched his illustration career when his first drawing was published in the New York Herald Tribune’s drama section on October 14, 1928. After the Depression hit, Freeman found work as an artist for the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project. He created his own magazine, Newsstand, to serve as a more personal outlet for his drawings and lithographs of the city. In 1951 Freeman published his first children’s book, co-authored with his wife and fellow artist, Lydia Cooley. Freeman would go on to author and illustrate nearly 40 books for children, including the groundbreaking Corduroy. A City for Corduroy: Don Freeman’s New York documents the artist’s love for his adopted home. Focused on moments of quiet and clamor, drama and humor, Don Freeman illustrated the humanity of the great metropolis—a big place where even a small, stuffed bear can find a friend.
    CITY LIFE
    When he first arrived in New York in 1928, Don Freeman eked out a living playing trumpet at night and took classes at the Art Students League during the day. At the League, he studied under famed Ashcan School artist John Sloan, who became a lifelong friend and mentor. He also took his first class on lithography and immediately fell in love with the printing process. Freeman found that “the lithographic medium fitted my temperament to a T-square… it set me to work translating into...
