Reviews - What do customers think about I Have a Dream, Too! (Joe Joe in the City)?

wonderful  Aug 1, 2007
another great addition to Elster's "Joe Joe In the City" series. I loved it, my son loved it. Frankly, he's hooked. Can't wait for another one
I have a dream too  Feb 27, 2005
That one day 4 year olds will be able to actually read this book.
This book is not meant for kids aged 4-8. It is well beyond what they understand. Frankly , i don't even think a 4 year old can even read this. Nice pictures. But unfortunately , i don't enjoy buying a book for pictures. I can get pictures anywhere. I didn't need to purchase this book to get them. Anyway , don't buy this book unless you enjoy paying a high price for pictures. With regards to the age group. Unless you have a gifted 4 year old this book is a waste of time for him/her.

Just another note , you have to be over the age of 13 to write a feedback. So the poor gifted 4-8 year olds can't even leave feedback about this book.
Introducing a Beautiful Woman: Mary Bethune  Feb 5, 2005
J. A. Elster has captured black history in a delightful series of books about Joe Joe, a young city kid. Photographs are used to enhance Nicole Tadgell's lively illustrations. They are appealing & contemporary, reflecting issues of peer pressure & yearnings for a better future.

Joe Joe is harrassed by other kids as he dreams of going to college: this, after reading about the life of Mary McLeod Bethune whose hopes were built into an 'institute' that became the Bethune-Cookman College in Florida. The text for the "book" Joe Joe reads is actually one written by the author who smoothly inserted it in the story.

Mary McLeod Bethune was a formidable lady, and part of my growing-up "lessons." My father loved to tell about her standing at the lectern as a guest preacher, saying "I AM BEAUTIFUL!" Her words put things in proper perspective because what was truly important WAS her message of hope. She had built her dreams from her own fortitude and sweet potato pies.

Reviewer *mcHaiku* hopes that her example will help us all be courageous when facing hurdles to education.
Never let our dreams be deferred!  Feb 28, 2003
Wonderfully inspiring story about perserverance, with a touch of Black History! Purchased this book for our 9 year old son - who has read it over and over again - as have his 12 and 15 year old sisters. He has so enjoyed it that we're donating a copy to his school library. Great story line for those about to cave in to peer pressure!
A must have for your library!
