The Creation by James Weldon Johnson
1995 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award
Easily one of my favorite books I have ever read! The idea of capturing the sweet moments when a grandfather tells a story to young children is amazing. James E. Ransome, the illustrator, did a wonderful job in showing the different expressions we have while listening to an interesting story! I completely understand why this book was chosen for the award! The author told the story in a way a child could fully comprehend without asking too many questions. A must read for all children!!
