Read full description of the books:



Genre: Biography Reading level: Ages 6-9
Vaudeville was old when today’s children’s grandparents were young. Tap dancing may be an art with which many are not familiar. That makes a biography like this one so important. Knockin’ on Wood was written for a young child’s first foray into real stories about real people. The reader will learn about Clayton “Peg Leg” Bates, his mother, and his dreams of dancing for a living. The oil and watercolor drawings let us see his farm, his lifestyle, and the resort he built. The audience is also gifted with insights into the struggles he faced as a black, disabled man in a time period without many civil rights. This book, nominated for several awards, is written in picture book style. The somewhat primitive illustrations lend a comfortable, friendly air to sometimes-uncomfortable situations and settings. The final page gifts the reader with a photograph of this famous dancer and biographical information that indicates Peg Leg Bates danced through life to the ripe old age of 91!
Other picture book style biographies:

Johnny Appleseed, Patricia Demuth & Michael Montgomery
A picture book of George Washington Carver, David A. Adler
