Concerning the importance of believing in oneself May 23, 2003
Pictures For Miss Josie is a remarkable picture book by Sandra Belton based on the life of celebrated African-American artist Josephine Carroll Smith. Slightly abstract yet vivid color illustrations by Benny Andrews complement this glowing portrayal of Miss Josie and her exhortations concerning the importance of believing in oneself and rising to one's fullest potential. Pictures For Miss Josie is very highly recommended for school and community library picture book collections.
