Book Review #958
Show Way by Jacqueline Woodson, illustrated by Hudson Talbott
Rating: three stars (out of four)
The format of this book and the illustrations were amazing. I loved the blend of collage, fabric, and beautiful drawings. The story was an engaging tale that followed a family through various generations. I liked the poetic way this story was told and how it kind of had a lilt to it. I thought it was a little strange this book got a Newbery since it is a picture-book, but I didn't feel like that really took away from it. This is a book a variety of ages can enjoy and get something out of it. I'd recommend.
