Go Forth and Tell

McDaniel, Breanna J. Go Forth and Tell. New York: Dial Books for Young Readers, 2024.
This gorgeous picture book – illustrated by April Harrison – tells the story of Augusta Baker, a little girl who loved listening to her grandmother’s stories and who grew up to become a teacher who loved telling her own stories, as well as the first African American librarian to be head of children’s services in the New York Public Library system. Highly recommended for readers of any age who like telling stories and creating works of art.
