Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I am a story.
So are you.
So is everyone.

Julius Lester says, "I write because our lives are stories. If enough of those stories are told, then perhaps we will begin to see that our lives are the same story. The differences are merely in the details." Now Mr. Lester shares his own story as he explores what makes each of us special. Karen Barbour's dramatic, vibrant paintings speak to the heart of Lester's unique vision, truly a celebration of all of us.

Synopsis:

The author introduces the concept of race as only one component in an individual's or nation's "story."

About the Author

Julius Lester is the son of a Methodist minister and grew up listening to his father’s sermons at weekly services. As an adult he converted to Judaism, about which he wrote in his memoir, Lovesong: Becoming a Jew. Mr. Lester has felt compelled to write about the Moses story for decades, and in creating the character of Almah he found his way to do so.

Mr. Lester is the author of more than twenty books, including Newbery Honor book To Be a Star, which he compiled and which was illustrated by Tom Feelings, and the Caldecott Honor book John Henry, illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. Mr. Lester teaches in the Judaic studies, English, and history departments at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
