  • Amanda

    This is very uplifting, inspirational, and authentic. I love the diversity and the thread interwoven among all of pieces: acceptance and love. Be kind, be you, and love others.

  • Ireadkidsbooks

    Full of messages ranging from comforting to inspirational, with carefully paired artwork for each entry. The range of written work means there's something in here for everyone, and the single-spread format makes the collection approachable for upper-elementary students while not off-putting for high-schoolers. The line-up of creators is a who's-who of contemporary diverse creativity for children.

  • Earl

    An inspiring anthology for upper elementary and middle school grades that tackles current issues that have happened in the past. It's a good reminder that things can be overcome but it takes time and teamwork.

    This book was written in response to the question of African American parents who were struggling with what to tell their kids in light of some of the racism making its way more readily into American political rhetoric. It is short stories, poems, and art designed to restore hope to children who might be frightened. A beautiful keepsake.

  • JoEllen

    The Words & Images of Hope is a must-have, must-share powerful collection. Incredible #heartprintbook with essays, advice and inspiration from incredible voices. Need to get the audio version too! Advice from Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovich should be made into posters for every classroom wall.

  • Julie Overpeck aka Mrs. O's Library

    With a country so divided, children naturally notice the tension and fear the future. Editors Wade Hudson and Cheryl Willis Hudson wanted to combat this hopelessness, so they asked many diverse artists to create works that would address the future. The result is a magnificent collection of creative works--poems, letters, essays, illustrations--that give hope and impart wisdom to today's children, especially children of color. It is a tender embrace of encouragement and hope from today's artists ...more
