Review Quotes




Praise for H is for Harlem:

* "Historically rich.... Harrison's stunning, colorful, highly textured illustrations complement and expand upon Johnson's textual snapshots, which offer just enough detail to encourage children to deepen their knowledge of Harlem. This is a beautiful and welcome celebration of Black joy. A gem that whets the appetite to learn more about a city where art is as alive as the people who live there."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
