    An inspiring bookI really enjoyed reading it

    I should open by saying that I loved the illustrations in this book. A.G. Ford outdid himself with this book. The illustrations are vivid and beautiful. The trouble I had was with the text. I think this could have used a lot more trimming and editing. This is simply going to be too much for many young readers. I can't help but feel like this was given a pass on the editing portion of its publication process because it was a book about Malcolm X written by one of Malcolm X's children, and it real [...]

    We love picture book biographies as they help children understand and see that someone who was once like them grew up to make a difference in the world. Written by his daughter, this inspiring book celebrates a vision of freedom and justice, and shows the childhood story of Malcolm X, one of America’s most influential figures.When confronted with intolerance and a series of tragedies, Malcolm’s optimism and faith were threatened, and he had to learn how to be strong and how to hold on to his [...]

    As an ardent follower of el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz, I was happy to find this look into the childhood of a man that helped shape some much of my childhood ideologies. The story is told through the eyes of his daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz. While there is plenty of biases in her father's favor, I feel that Shabazz does a wonderful job introducing young readers to Malcolm Little and spreading the message that greatness really can come from anywhere but it always starts with YOU!

    I’ve been waiting for a childhood Malcom X story / an X that is accessible for younger kids, so that his narrative can be available to them and not so one-sided etc The writing needs work and was disappointing. I’ve seen the author speak and she was similarly disjointed and in need of a good editor. That being said, the art is beautiful and carries this book 110%!

    Bizarre focus on his childhood. Obscures important facts about his fathers death. Culminates in seventh grade

    Rebecca
    Beautiful artwork illustrates this story of Malcolm X's childhood.

    Brenda Kahn
    Hm. Very wordy picture book of Malcolm Little's complicated childhood beautifully illustrated. No backmatter other than an author's note.

    Jamie
    A wonderful, though wordy, picture book about Malcolm X's childhood. Such beautifully painted illustrations!

    Subject Malcolm X (1925-1965) was a human rights activist.ScopeThis book, written by his daughter, relates the childhood of Malcolm Little, the boy who grows up to be Malcolm X. There is a ton of information - much of it unnecessarily detailed - crammed into every page. The book ends with Malcolm being elected class president and does not come close to even mentioning what Malcolm X is known for.About the IllustrationsThe pictures have a very contemporary look, and there isn't much in them to su [...]

    Malcolm X's daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, has written a moving tribute to her father and her grandparents, Earl and Louise Little. She focuses on her grandparents and how they shaped her father's formative years. Shabazz is an inspiring writer and she weaves a compelling narrative that gives insight to the ideas and events that influenced her father's thinking. The young Malcolm grew up in a loving family committed to progressive ideas about social justice. Earl Little's death was a pivotal factor [...]

    This is a cute story about the history of Malcolm Little, more well known today as Malcolm X. The story begins with his family and how his parents met in a small town with strong moral values. They had three kids and Malcolm was always a little different- rambunctious and a natural leader. When Malcolm was young his family’s house was burned down by some people who did not agree with the Little Family’s hope for equality. Early on the Little children learned lessons about hard work from thei [...]

    The oil paint illustrations in this much-needed picture book biography of Malcolm Little are filled with detail and emotions. Malcolm X would grow up to become Malcolm X, but it is helpful for young readers to know something about his childhood and growing up years. Since the story is told by one of his daughters, readers are treated to an insider's perspective on those formative times as well as a possibly romanticized view of the challenges he faced and his triumphs. While parts of the narrati [...]

    Pamela
    This picture book biography of Malcolm X is beautifully written by one of his daughters. In it, she tells the story, not of the man, but of the boy who was known as Malcolm Little. This young Malcolm grew up in a family of love, where education was prized, where kindness was an everyday occurrence, and where an appreciation of nature was always present. His parents instilled the values of tolerance, love and staying true to himself. Even in the hardest times, when their home was burned and they [...]

    Shabazz’s portrait of her father’s boyhood and his nurturing family is filled with bright and inspiring images and messages about hope, dedication, love, acceptance, perseverance and “discipline, fortitude, and self-determination.” Here is her description of her paternal grandfather:Malcolm’s father was Earl Little, but there was nothing little about him. Papa Earl was a strong, broad, and towering man. His smooth dark skin was as beautiful as the midnight sky. His voice resounded like [...]

    El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, a.k.a. Malcolm X had a tumultuous childhood. His parents Earl and Louise Little remained his mentors for life. His lessons in faith and courage began early in life. When his father purchased six acres of land in Lansing, Michigan, Malcolm watched his father build the house ‘nail by nail and brick by brick.’ Malcolm cherished his father’s optimism and faith. His mother home schooled the kids and taught them all they knew. The carefree childhood ended when his fathe [...]

    Such a beautiful yet sorrowful tale of a family that loved boundlessly yet was torn apart by racism and ignorance. Author and daughter of the famous Civil Rights activist Malcolm X, shows a portion of his life that few know of. Whether or not you agreed with his politics reading about his childhood will give people insight into why he made the choices he did. This is a touching tribute to her father, a man who fought for equality. My favorite portion of the story was hearing about the lessons Ma [...]

    I so wanted to love this book, but it fell short in many ways for me. The oil paintings that accompany the story are beautiful. Parts of the story worked extremely well. But I'm not sure what purpose it serves. Children will get a better idea of Malcolm X's life growing up and the morals he was raised with. But they will miss a biography that focuses on his later life. I think it would be far more effective with less information, where readers got a chance to really focus on important moments. I [...]

    This is about the childhood of Malcolm X. I was really looking forward to this book but I was a bit disappointed. It was written by his daughter but it only talks about his childhood and the things his parents taught him which is good information. The story was very long and had too many words. It told descriptions of flowers and it wasn't getting to the point that I think kids books should be about. The illustrations are really good and the people paintings are well done, but the book just lose [...]

    This was such a neat children's book. I liked how it told the story of a person that is well known but it was told in a way that children could understand. Usually he comes up in history and it can get boring with all the facts and history that comes with it, but in this book it tells the story of a child who was raised by parents that high standards and how they were always looking for ways to do better. I think i could use this book in my class for when im talking about equality and civil righ [...]

    This is a picture book about Malcolm X. Malcolm X is seldom covered in elementary school, but I would want to give my students a complete picture of the Civil Rights Movement, so I would include this book on him. Contrary to most texts on Malcolm X, this book focuses on when he was a young boy. It is written by his daughter and includes beautiful figurative language. This could be taught alongside a lesson on how to separate fact and opinion, as the author's opinions of her father are weaved thr [...]

    I read and shared this with my 7th grade students today. The illustrations are truly beautiful as is the writing. I had students pick out all of the wonderful figurative language. I have loved Malcolm X forever and reading this has made me realize even more about the strength of his mother and father and how they created such an amazing man. Oh if the the father had lived - what would Malcolm's life have been like then. Thanks you Ilyasah for sharing your daddy with the world.

    Samantha
    This picture book biography of Malcolm X is written by his daughter and focuses on the key people and events that shaped him. Oil paint artwork brings a realism to the narrative such that the illustrations seem to serve as snapshots in the timeline that was Malcolm's childhood. An extensive author's note follows the story and reveals the author's inspiration and sources for writing this book.Recommended for grades 4-6.

    Jamila
    Shabazz tells the story of her father's childhood through warm descriptions of growing up in the Little household - fishing, gardening, chores, and activism. I appreciate her focus on family, love, and discovery to help young (and old) readers develop a deeper understanding of Malcolm X. The scenes between a young Malcolm and his mother were wonderful. Shabazz's 'Author's Note' provides great background information.

    Monique
    Ilyasah Shabazz writes eloquently about her dad's youth. The flow of the story is detailed and focuses on his parents, Earl and Louise. Shabazz writes about family history, love and heartache that I haven't read before. The artwork is magnificent and the brilliant colors make this a book to treasure.

    Trevor Bernsdorf
    This book follows the childhood of Malcolm X, and the important events of his childhood that shaped him to become the civil rights leader that he would later become. Malcolm X is one of the least talked about and important historical figures. This story makes his life even more relatable to students because it begins with Malcolm as a child an follows the events of his life.
