Join acclaimed author Walter Dean Myers in a heartwarming celebration of African-American childhood in words and pictures.

Join acclaimed author Walter Dean Myers in a heartwarming celebration. The author Walter Dean Myers writes at the book's beginning that over time he discovered and purchased many vintage photographs of African American children at antique shops, flea markets, auction houses, and from museum collections. So like me the children in his book are unknown to him, lost to history.

Walter Dean Myers (born Walter Milton Myers; August 12, 1937 – July 1, 2014) was a writer of children's books best known for young adult literature.

‘The distinguished novelist has culled his personal collection of turn-of-the-century photographs of African-American children and composed the verses that accompany this enchanting selection of youngsters.’ —NYT. ‘A unique celebration of the continuum of human life and of childhood in all its robustness, fragility, and evanescent beauty. . . . An exquisite album. The 42 superbly reproduced black-and-white and sepia prints radiate intensely with the personalities of their subjects.’ —SLJ. ‘The poet, inspired by the photographs, affirms the black experience in a lyrical, tender, and sometimes humorous voice.’ —H.

Comments to eBook Brown Angels: An Album of Pictures and Verse
Ceck
This is a lovely book of vintage photos of black children. The photos are very beautiful and illicit smiles and emotion. The poems with each photo are sometimes catchy, like a jump rope rhyme and sometimes sweet, like a lullaby. Probably a little more suited for girls, if buying for a child. It is also suitable for adults. I have given it as a gift to two or three adults and they all loved it. I own a hard copy I have it displayed, because I like for as many people as possible to share in the pleasure.

I adore the pictures in this album. I ordered a book for my "treasures" and also ordered one ro give to my very good Black friend. She liked it also.

It is hard to pick a favorite picture. But, if I had to, I would select the one of the little boy riding in a cart pulled by large goats. I had pet goats in my lifetime. I enjoyed playing with them and learning their ways. I have always considered them special. And I have a warm spot in my heart for goats.

My daughter fell in love with this book in January when she took a how to teach children's literature class. I purchased it for her upcoming 21st birthday. Once I read it, I fell in love with it too.
