The GAS-ART Gifts last minute holiday gift guide
You made your list and checked it twice, but somehow you still forgot to grab a gift for someone special. Sometimes the hustle and bustle of the holiday season makes it difficult to remember everyone, but our last minute holiday gift guide has something unique and personal for anyone on your list.
Jazz Baby – $16.99
Mesmerize your infant with exciting illustrations and a contagious rhythm. Lisa Wheeler and R. Gregory Christie pair up for a celebration of music, imagination, and big families–but they know that even a jazz baby needs to snooze.
This dynamic ode to girl power was written by Afro-American actor, poet and playwright Beach E. Richards, and first published in 1951. Her inspirational poem is given new life in this edition that includes an introduction by Lisa Gay Hamilton and stunning illustrations by R. Gregory Christie.
Freedom in Congo Square – $17.99
One of The New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Books of 2016, this poetic nonfiction picture book tells a little-known piece of African American history that captures a human’s capacity to find hope and joy in difficult circumstances, and demonstrates how New Orleans’ Congo Square was truly freedom’s heart.
Philip Reid: Saves the Statue of Freedom – $16.99
Born into slavery, Philip Reid grew up on a South Carolina farm, helping various craftsmen such as the blacksmith and the potter. Eventually, he was sold to a man named Clark Mills, who was opening a foundry in Washington, D.C. Mr. Mills’s foundry is contracted to cast the Freedom statue but the project is jeopardized when a seemingly unsolvable puzzle arises. And it is Philip Reid, an American-born slave, who steps in.
The Champ – $10.00 – 30.00
