Jamal's Busy Day

by Wade Hudson
Illustrated by George Ford

Published by Just Us Books, 1991
24 pages
ISBN: 0-940975-21-1

Ages 4-6

Jamal's parents work hard all day; his dad as an architect and his mom as an accountant. Jamal works hard, too, because school is his "job." Readers follow Jamal through a typical day as he works with numbers, does research, attends meetings, helps out his supervisor, etc.--all activities he describes in terms his parents use for their work while the illustrations show him in an elementary school setting. The clever interplay between text and pictures distinguish the second title in a series created to enhance the self-esteem of African-American children.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
