God Bless the Child
Publisher: Amistad PressFormat: Hardcover
"Mama may have,Papa may have,But God bless the childThat's got his ownThat's got his own.“The song ”God Bless the Child" was first performed by legendary jazz vocalist Billie Holiday in 1939 and remains one of her enduring masterpieces. In this picture book interpretation, renowned illustrator Jerry Pinkney has created images of a family moving from the rural South to the urban North during the Great Migration that reached its peak in the 1930s. The song's message of self-reliance still speaks to us today but resonates even stronger in its historical context. This extraordinary book stands as a tribute to all those who dared so much to get their own. A free CD of Billie Holiday's timeless recording of “God Bless the Child” is included to enjoy along with the book.
