2009 Award
Sojourner Truth's Step-Stomp Stride
( by Andrea Davis Pinkney/ illus. Brian Pinkney, Disney Jump At the Sun $16.99 Score: )

The story of Sojourner Truth is told here in a lively storyteller voice that addresses young listeners with warmth and illustrations that match the spirited text. With her "hands like hams" and size 12 shoes that could stomp on beetles...this Sojourner Truth comes across as larger than life!  She is like a folktale hero--but one who was no work of fiction. The Pinkneys have captured the story of this giant of a woman in words and images that bring her to life for a new generation of children who will come to know more about this legend who fought the chains of slavery and the rights of women.
