Day #5 of Virtual Book Tour for ABLAZE WITH COLOR


Review by Lisa's Reading:

"This most beautiful book is inspiring, entertaining, and educational.

"The book is the story of the life of famous artist, Alma Thomas. The girl was born in Georgia during segregation and couldn’t go to the white school, libraries, or museums. Her parents provided many books, activities, lectures, and led the community in cultural and educational events. Later, they moved to Washington, DC, where they continued to carry out community outreach. Alma followed in their footsteps after studying art in college. She loved teaching art to children in the schools of Washington, DC.


"Her art peaked in her later years and she was featured in major galleries and President Obama hung her painting in the White House.

"This book is so beautifully illustrated and young children will be inspired by her story."
