So this post of read aloud picks aims my Lena Horne PB bio at age 15+

Lena Horne Cover

ILA’s Literacy Daily blog featured a list of read alouds for ages 4 to 15+. The Legendary Miss Lena Horne, illustrated by Elizaabeth Zunon was the pick for ages 15 and up.

Several years ago, a librarian once introduced me prior to a keynote by saying, “Carole Boston Weatherford doesn’t write picture books; she writes illustrated books for adults.” I don’t know if that’s true or not, although I will admit to tackling provocative subjects and themes. In a way, aren’t picture books just lavishly illustrated short stories characterized by an economy of language? Here are some other picture books of mine that might fit the bill for teen read alouds.



Do or have you read aloud to teen? What picture books would you share with teens?

    Carole, It is clear to me that your writing grows out of a passion for shining a light upon the paths of others. Your noble spirit shines through your writing. I cheer you on!
