Between the Lines written by Sandra Neil Wallace, illustrated by Bryan Collier

I can’t read this picture book without tearing up. Ernie Barnes had a lifelong wish to be an artist but poverty kept him tied to paid work. His talent at football took him into the professional leagues, where coaches often caught him sketching on the bench. Facing constant adversity, Ernie refused to settle for what the world told him he should do. Bryan Collier, one of my favorite illustrators, created the mixed media art, and it’s vital and delightful and surprising on every page. This is a powerful story of stamina and inner strength. Grades 2–5. - Tera
