A selection of children’s books to accompany the 30 Americans exhibition:

parker looks up

Parker Looks Up: An Extraordinary Moment, by Parker Curry and Jessica Curry, illustrated by Brittany Jackson. $17.99

A visit to Washington, DC’s National Portrait Gallery forever alters Parker Curry’s young life when she views First Lady Michelle Obama’s portrait. An everyday moment became an extraordinary one…that continues to resonate its power, inspiration, and indelible impact. Because, as Jessica Curry said, “anything is possible regardless of race, class, or gender.” This book is a New York Times bestseller.

Radiant Child

Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, by Javaka Steptoe. $16.99

Jean-Michel Basquiat and his unique paintings rocketed to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Javaka Steptoe’s vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat’s own introduce young readers to the powerful message that art doesn’t always have to be neat or clean–and definitely not inside the lines–to be beautiful. This book is a winner of the Randolph Caldecott Medal and the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award. 



Another, written and illustrated by Christian Robinson. $17.99

In his eagerly anticipated debut as author-illustrator, Caldecott and Coretta Scott King honoree Christian Robinson brings young readers on a playful, imaginative journey into another world.
