Friend Friday

Tanya Stone

I don't [yet] know Sibert Medalist Tanya Stone, but I believe we would be good friends. I can tell from her carefully researched books that we both like to poke around in places that others overlook. 

Courage Has No Color has garnered four starred reviews, including one from Kirkus, which called it An exceptionally well-researched, lovingly crafted and important tribute to unsung American heroes.

Want to know more? Tanya was sweet enough to provide a link to a wonderful book trailer; click here to view. She also let me know about a free reading guide which you can download here.

I've read that it took her seven years to research this book, and that she worked hard to track down archival photos. It would be a great addition to your local school library so be sure to buy two copies from your favorite independent bookstore.
