There is an in depth review of BEFORE JOHN WAS A JAZZ GIANT by Ms. Betsy Bird. You can read it here. Her review was so thorough and insightful that I think even I learned something. Reviews are really fascinating to me and I do read them because they can provide useful and objective insight into one's work albeit sometimes painful.
I also did an interview with Betsy here.BEFORE JOHN WAS A JAZZ GIANT was also chosen as a Bank St. College Committee pick for the month of April and a Newsweek pick of the week.

Each day features a new interview. Here's a partial list of other authors and illustrators interviewed: Karen English (author of THE BABY ON THE WAY), Carole Boston Weatherford (author of BEFORE JOHN WAS A JAZZ GIANT), Nina Crews, Tonya Bolden and Shane Evans. Many thanks to Don Tate and The Brown Bookshelf!
