Review: I Have Heard of a Land by Joyce Carol Thomas

Synopsis: Told with lyrical poetry against gorgeous illustrations, I Have Heard of a Land tells the story of the first black Americans to settle in Oklahoma. With hope, hard-work, and determination, they created a life of freedom and prosperity. The story focuses on a single female, and her dreams of a place of her own.

Review: Excellent tale for kids - with both beauty and adventure. The pictures are gorgeous and worth the book alone just for those.
