My Block Looks Like


Praise for My Block Looks Like by Janelle Harper and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award winner, Frank Morrison:

*“The artist’s careful attention to detail and the shifting visual perspectives in action scenes bring Harper’s musical text to life. The narrator argues convincingly for the Bronx as ‘the coolest place I’ve ever been,’ where ‘dreams rise higher than the smog’ and neighbors ‘sparkle under streetlamps.’ A culturally rich and beautifully illustrated child’s-eye view of home.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

*“Kinetic, portrait-filled art from Morrison (Breaking to the Beat!) reveals theneighborhood’s sights (double Dutch, the Icee man, pickup games), vibrantly conveying the essence ofthe protagonist’s home: “my city/ my hood/ my block. My home/ my village/ my family/ my friends/ my soul.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Dynamic details and an expansive sense of possibility . . . A caring depiction of urban life that will resonate with listeners who love the bustling energy and beauty of the place they call home.” —BCCB Reviews

“Morrison paints vibrant spreads . . . The poetic text reads like a song and makes for a perfect read-aloud story . . . A positive and uplifting book that can be appreciated by all readers.” —School Library Journal
