Review quote

Praise for DIEGO (1991): "An accessible picture book about the life and work of Diego Rivera sounds like an oxymoron, but Winter . . . succeed[s] beyond belief. . . . The last pictures show him as a young man, perched on his scaffolding, brushes in hand, beckoning viewers on with his ardent glance. Readers will wish they could follow." -- School Library Journal "An excellent beginning biography." -- Kirkus * One of The Ruminator Review's 100 Best Children's Books of the Twentieth Century * A Reading Rainbow Review book * A 1991 Parents' Choice Award Honor winner Praise for FAIR BALL! (1997): Certain to be a hit with kids who take baseball history seriously, Winter's . . . handsome volume devotes a spread each to 14 stars of the Negro Leagues. Balancing stats with engaging trivia and anecdotes, the author will open readers' eyes to the injustices of segregated baseball. . . . This picture book [will] help set some records straight. -- Publishers Weekly A good, highly accessible introduction to a group of athletes who deserve to be as well known as their white counterparts. -- School Library Journalshow more
