Bone Wind Fire. DVD. 30 min. National Film Board of Canada. 2012. ISBN unavail. $150.
Gr 9 Up–In this visually stunning film, viewers are given a brief glimpse into the lives and art of three 20th-century female artists—Georgia O’Keefe, Emily Carr, and Frida Kahlo—through their own letters and diaries. Each artist spurned the tradition of realism by using painting to capture her own personal experiences. We see O’Keefe walking through the desert, gathering rocks and weathered sections of bone, stating “nothing is less real than realism.” Carr wanders through the forests of British Columbia, with its soaring trees and shafts of filtered sunlight, adamant in her belief that “the old way of seeing is inadequate.” Kahlo, internally raging against the way her physical limitations have come to define her life, declares “decency and good behavior weary me.” These women are courageous in their convictions about their defiant approach to art, yet we hear how they falter when their paintings are subjected to public opinion. The paintings in combination with the artists’ thoughts and impressions provide for an intimate portrait of each woman. Students will be intrigued and want to learn even more about these artists.–Cary Frostick, Mary Riley Styles Public Library Falls Church, VA
Getting to Know the World’s Greatest Artists: Faith Ringgold. DVD. 22 min. Getting to Know. 2012. ISBN 978-0-9828803-6-4. $29.95.
Gr 2-5–Mike Venezia knows how to present a topic with whacky humor, interesting facts, and lots of kid appeal. Based on his book (Children’s Press, 2008) about Faith Ringgold, this enthusiastic program introduces an amazing and influential African-American artist to young viewers. Told in the first person and read in a rich, smile-filled voice by Ora Jones, this production provides information about the artist and her artwork. There are plenty of photographs and video clips, along with funny cartoons that are sure to appeal to the target audience. Many examples of the artist’s work are also featured, showing the wide range of her talent, with special emphasis on her story quilts and stuffed sculptures. Wonderful background music sets an optimistic tone as viewers learn about Ringgold’s childhood and adult life. The challenges she faced and the experiences and artists that influenced her work are presented. Best of all, viewers get to see that art work, diving into its colors and reveling in its exuberance. This is a story of persistence and perseverance—of a strong woman who followed her dream and cherishes her heritage. Both educational and inspiring, it merits a place in all library collections for children.–Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, WA
You’re Not a Little Kid Anymore! Personal Hygiene. DVD. 18 min. with tchr’s. guide. MarshMedia. 2013. ISBN 978-1-55942-636-7. $79.95.
Gr 3-5–The program does a great job of covering the basics of personal hygiene that every fourth through sixth grade teacher wishes their students knew. The focus is not on puberty itself, but rather on the extra oil on your skin and in your hair, the sweat that’s now becoming a problem, pimples., deodorant. And, since it covers the basics, it provides clear instructions on how to avoid problems. Taking showers, brushing your teeth, washing your hands properly—it’s all here. There are also segments on taking care of your clothes, cleaning your ears, cutting your nails, taking care of your hair, and avoiding germs. The narrator also discusses protecting your hearing and eyesight, going a bit beyond personal hygiene. The format is also fun—each segment deals with a single issue followed by a short rap and dance by the multiethnic adolescent cast that gives a quick review and ends with the line “you’re not a little kid anymore!” Pacing is good, and the valuable information is presented clearly. The attitude of the presenters is positive and there’s little here that would embarrass students. This is clearly designed to catch kids just before, or as, they need the information. Teachers will embrace it, and probably show it more than once a year.–Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, WA
The Abolitionists (American Experience Series). DVD. 3 hrs. Prod. by WGBH Foundation. Dist. by PBS Dist. 2013. ISBN 978-1-60883-833-2. $24.99.
Gr 8 Up–This year marks the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, an event made possible by the efforts of a diverse group of anti-slavery activists referred to as Abolitionists. Considered to be radicals by many and often the target of personal attacks, their struggles to raise the collective consciousness of Northerners and Southerners to the horror of the slave system are recreated in this incredibly well-crafted program. Divided into three 60-minute components, this nicely paced presentation is uniquely structured: each section includes theater-quality dramatic re-creations of historical events which are smoothly punctuated with supplemental documentary-style narration and commentary/interpretation by a panel of historians. The producers follow a chronological pattern, beginning in the 1820s and progressing through the end of the Civil War, with moving portraits of significant individuals (Angelina Grimké, William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown, and others) as well as events (such as the publication of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the power of abolitionist newspapers, and the enactment of the Fugitive Slave Law) and their contributions to their committed cause. A wide variety of vintage photographs and copies of period newspapers supplement the narrator’s clear and well-paced script. Chapter selection and English-language subtitles are optional. Additional resources, including a blog, are available at pbs.org to increase the usability of this incredible film which will be a valued asset to media collections for classroom use and individual research.–Dwain Thomas, formerly Lake Park High School, Roselle, IL
Death and the Civil War (American Experience Series). DVD. 2 hrs. Prod. by WGBH Educational Foundation. Dist. by PBS Dist. 2012. ISBN 978-1-60883-759-5. $24.99.
Gr 9 Up–The Civil War, the first modern and industrial war, resulted in 750,000 casualties, a scale of death unprecedented in American history. This documentary, based on Drew Gilpin Faust’s book This Republic of Suffering (Knopf, 2008), examines the ways the nation dealt with this unspeakable tragedy. Narrated by Oliver Platt, the film utilizes historical photographs and primary sources, especially letters written by soldiers, to tell the history of the war from Fort Sumter to Appomattox. Also examined are the changes Americans were forced to make in the way they looked at death. Soldiers died far from home and from loved ones, and were often buried with no coffins or ceremonies or records of the grave sites. The government had no infrastructure for burial, no ambulance corps to assist the wounded, no systems to identify bodies or notify families, no national cemeteries, and no federal obligation to the dead. That all changed as a result of the Civil War. Faust and other historians tell the story, including accounts of African Americans who buried Union dead, the U.S. Sanitary Commission, Clara Barton who took medical supplies to the battlefields and after the war created a clearinghouse of missing soldiers, the work of Southern women who organized to identify and rebury Confederate dead, and the establishment of Memorial Days. Featuring exquisite editing, excellent narration, and appropriate music, this film should be an essential part of our understanding of the Civil War.–Patricia Ann Owens, Illinois Eastern Community Colleges, Mt. Carmel
Uses for Boys. By Erica Lorraine Scheidt. 4 CDs. 4:18 hrs. Brilliance Audio. 2013. ISBN 978-1-4692-4973-5. $69.97.
Gr 10 Up–Sixteen-year-old Anna’s earliest memories begin at age seven during the “tell-me-again” times. While snuggled against her mother, she listened to stories about how her mother always wanted a little girl. “Now I have everything,” she would whisper. A year later, the stories stopped and a wave of step-fathers began. Left to her own devices, Anna began to tell herself stories: “I had no mother. I had no father.” Fighting loneliness as a teenager, she finds temporary comfort in the arms of boys, earning the title of slut from her peers. Anna becomes a pregnant dropout, finds a minimum wage job, and moves in with her current boyfriend. One morning a “revelation” occurs. She is enough; she can write her own stories. No more replaying her mother’s stories or writing about the smiling families in pictures torn from magazines and taped to her walls. Anna’s story, stumbling yet steadfast, begins. She gets an abortion and rents an apartment, but still feels invisible behind the counter making cappuccinos for ladies with long, painted nails. Then Sam arrives—and Anna is anything but invisible. His family eats, banters, and laughs together. Sam is anything but temporary. Scheidt’s haunting yet poignant and poetic story (St. Martin’s Griffin, 2013) encourages girls to believe in their own importance and realize that their past does not have to dictate their future. Narrator Emily Durante beautifully captures the anguished and hopeful voice of Anna. A must-have.–Cheryl Preisendorfer, Twinsburg City Schools, OH
Got a Minute? Performed by Milkshake. CD. 54 min. Prod. by Milkshake Music. Dist. by CDBaby.com. 2013. ISBN unavail. $12.98.
K-Gr 5–Known for their pop-rock style, Milkshake is Lisa Mathews, Mikel Gehl, Tom Moon, Cord Neal, Michael Sheppard, and Brian Simms. Their previous albums have garnered a NAPPA Gold Award, a Parents’ Choice Gold Award, and a Parents’ Choice Silver Award. Their terrific performances continue on this fifth album with outstanding vocals and instrumental performances on guitar, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, violin, viola, bass, keyboards, accordion, piano, bagpipes, tuba, drums, and percussion. Two-time Grammy winners Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer are guest musicians on a couple of the songs. In keeping with the album’s title, several of the 33 numbers are just over a minute in length and most of them are less than two minutes long. The album starts out with the high-energy rock tune, “Got a Minute?,” and continues with songs in several varieties of rock, country, sea shanty, folk, and rap musical styles. A sampling of the other titles includes “Baltimore,” “Lookin’ Out the Window,” “We Just Wanna Have Fun,” “Fish,” “Girls Wanna Dance,” “Starry Starry Night,” “Tip Toe Thru the Tulips,” “Snowy,” “Seabreeze,” and “What’s That Sound” (with novelty sound effects such as whistles, metal spring sounds, etc.). A wonderful album that bridges the gap between preschool and teen music.–Beverly Wrigglesworth, San Antonio Public Library, TX
Ready Set Go. Performed by The Happy Racers. CD. 38 min. The Happy Racers. 2012. ISBN unavail. $10.
PreS-Gr 3–In their debut alternative children’s album, The Happy Racers, led by Nathan Meckel, prove that children’s music can be just as much fun for parents to listen to as it is for kids. Featuring original songs written by Meckel, along with children’s authors Barbara Joose and Peter Reynolds and Grammy nominated songwriter Burton Collins, this album embraces all of the fun and wonders of childhood. Rousing tunes such as “Move Your Body” and “ Hip Hooray Parade” will get children up and moving, while gentler numbers like “Lovabye Dragon” and “My Backyard” will assure children that they are safe and taken care of when going to sleep or having grand adventures as king of the backyard. Great vocals combine with a variety of instruments on each song to create a rich vibrant sound. Easy-to-understand, relatable lyrics will have listeners singing along. With most running between two to three minutes, these songs could easily be incorporated into programming. A must have for every collection. –Veronica De Fazio, Plainfield Public Library District, IL
Courage Has No Color: The True Story of the Triple Nickles, America’s First Black Paratroopers. By Tanya Lee Stone. 3 CDs. 3:03 hrs. Brilliance Audio. 2013. ISBN 978-1-4692-6257-4. $54.97.
Gr 5 Up–Stone’s book (Candlewick, 2013) presents a history of racial segregation and integration in the U.S. military during World War II and a relatively unknown but important group of unsung heroes. Initially, a group of African-American soldiers served as guards at the Parachute School at Fort Benning, GA, while their white counterparts were trained to be paratroopers. Battling prejudice and resistance from military and political leaders, these enlisted men became part of the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion, and were known as the Triple Nickles. The fully trained unit was not wanted on either the European or the Pacific war fronts, but they served the war effort as fire jumpers in our Pacific Northwest. At first, it seemed that they were just there to fight forest fires, but, unknown to most Americans, the Japanese had started sending balloon bombs to our shores. Most of these bombs didn’t detonate, but they needed to be found and disarmed without alerting residents or letting the Japanese know that their bombs had reached our shores. The Triple Nickles discreetly searched the forests and disarmed the bombs to keep Americans safe. At the end of the war, the Triple Nickles were integrated into a previously all-white military unit. In 1948, President Truman ordered the integration of all military branches. JD Jackson ably narrates, bringing the account to life. Be sure to have the print version of this expertly researched book available so listeners can peruse the photos that perfectly complement the narrative.–Ann Weber, Bellarmine College Prep., San Jose, CA
Growing Up in Coal Country. By Susan Campbell Bartoletti. 2 CDs. 2:18 hrs. Brilliance Audio. 2012. ISBN 978-1-4558-5821-7. $49.97.
Gr 5-8–In eight chapters divided into various aspects of coal miner culture and job types (nipper, breaker boy, spragger, and mule driver were the typical jobs for children), Bartoletti recounts (Houghton Mifflin, 1996) life in Northeastern Pennsylvania coal country around the turn of the 19th century utilizing oral history and archival documents. Although the focus is on the lives of children, first-hand accounts of adults who remember life as child laborers or miner’s daughters help to tell the story. Only the forward indicating her family’s mining connection gives a slight indication as to the author’s viewpoint about the industry. As in her award-winning Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler’s Shadow (Scholastic, 2005), Bartoletti’s approach is devoid of bias or sensationalism. No embellishment is needed for the stories of men crushed so badly by cave-ins that they were scraped off the mine floors with shovels, children secretly sabotaging company equipment to ensure a day at the circus, young boys losing fingers and limbs in accidents, boys playing with homemade baseballs and engaging in strikes, and mine owners who valued mules over men. The clear, no-frills delivery by Suzanne Toren is perfectly suited to Bartoletti’s style. The joy, the horror, the tenacity, the valor, the perseverance, and the loyalty of children growing up in coal country is presented, allowing listeners to form their own opinions. The only thing that could make this powerful audiobook even better would be the inclusion of the compelling black-and-white photos from the print version. With the current focus on Common Core Standards, this outstanding nonfiction selection fits the bill.–Lisa Taylor, Ocean County Library, NJ
