Flag-Waving Words

         While Saturday marked the official 233rd birthday of our nation, an interesting item crossed my desk about another, more recent major shift in the country’s pulse.

          Kadir Nelson’s book, Change Has Come, although intended for young readers, is a wonderful celebration for all ages on  Barack Obama’s ascent to the Presidency. This award-winning illustrator captured the spirit of those history-making moments through  powerful drawings that complemented key phrases from several of Obama’s speeches.  He explains what drives him to bring words to life in in this brief, yet dynamic video..

        This volume is definately a nice, big surprise in a small package–it’s poised to become a tradition for these times.
    Change Has Come, by Kadir Nelson, Simon & Schuster (2009)
Available at: Amazon, Powell’s Books, and bookstores everywhere.
