Review

Praise for Dream Street:

"Dreams for Black children manifest in striking art as the very idea of street is reimagined." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Beautiful and uplifting." Booklist, starred review

“A buoyant celebration of community nourishment, extolling the virtues of supporting children in dreaming freely and fully.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review 

“A stunning work of art that dismantles stereotypes about Black communities and portrays a place where love abounds.” —The Horn Book, starred review
 
Praise for Tricia Elam Walker's Nana Akua Goes to School:

“A picture book . . . that captures a complex vulnerability that every child feels at one point or another.” —The Wall Street Journal

“This lovely story explores the perennial fear of being different, while showcasing the great love between a grandparent and grandchild” —School Library Journal, starred review
 
“An open-hearted tribute to children with immigrant parents or grandparents.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This beautiful picture book offers a helpful perspective on cultural differences within a heartening family story." Booklist, starred review

"Walker writes convincingly about how difference can cause unease among children, and her story offers a compelling portrait of a grandmother whose pride and poise put that concern to rest.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Offers viewers both the comfort of the familiar and, for those unfamiliar with West African arts, a tantalizing introduction to interpreting symbols. Most importantly, this calls for readers and listeners to have faith in youngsters to embrace a new concept with an open mind and enthusiastic spirit.” —The Bulletin

“Lucky for readers and for Zura, her grandmother has a fascinating cultural tradition that, in her first book for kids, Tricia Elam Walker presents with extraordinary grace and nimbleness…. [An] eye-opening picture book.” —Shelf Awareness --This text refers to the library edition.
