Emile and the Field
Written by poet Kevin Young and beautifully illustrated by Chioma Ebinama, this story shares the relationship a young Black boy has with the neighborhood fields and nature around him.
The book provides a sense of wonder and sense of place in nature. The water color and ink illustrations reflect Emile's reverence for the natural world around him.
A fresh, rare story of a young Black male defining his place outside of an urban landscape.
