Reviews - What do customers think about One Million Men and Me?

Excellent picture book, where the language is as telling as the art  Apr 13, 2008
Congratulations are due to Ms. Lyons for this enjoyable picture book that focuses on the events of the Million Man March through the eyes of a little girl. The author must also be an excellent journalist, based on the depth of observation demonstrated through the narrative. The story is interesting and the descriptions are unexpected. The message is positive and supportive of interpersonal and community relationships. I would recommend this for families and collections for young children.
 
The simple yet iconic color illustrations bring the events of the Million Man March to life  Dec 4, 2007
One Million Men and Me is a children's picturebook inspired by the author's personal experience witnessing a father and daughter at the Million Man March of 1995, which brought together black men across America who were committed to making positive and lasting changes for the better both in the home and in the community. Told through the eyes of a little girl who was with her father on the day black men made history, One Million Men and Me emphasizes the importance of a father-daughter bond as well as standing up for one's beliefs. The simple yet iconic color illustrations bring the events of the Million Man March to life for young readers who might not have been born yet when the it took place. "I'll always remember / the day Daddy took me / on a journey. // The day a million Black men / stood shoulder to shoulder, / the day history was made with / one million men and me."
