Woodson was recently named the Young People's Poet Laureate by the Poetry Foundation. Born on February 12th in Columbus, Ohio, Jacqueline Woodson grew up in Greenville, South Carolina, and Brooklyn, New York and graduated from college with a B.A. in English.

Earl Bradley Lewis was born on December 16, 1956, in Philadelphia, PA. As early as the third grade he displayed artistic promise. Inspired by two uncles, who where artists, Lewis decided he wanted to follow in their footsteps.

After finishing the sixth grade, he attended the Saturday morning Temple University School Art League run by his uncle. Under the tutelage of Clarence Wood, a noted painter in Philadelphia, Lewis began his formal art training. He remained in the program until his enrollment in the Temple University Tyler School of Art in 1975.

During his four years at Temple, Lewis majored in Graphic Design and Illustration, along with Art Education. There he discovered his medium of preference, watercolor.

Upon graduation in 1979, Lewis went directly into teaching, along with freelancing in Graphic Design. Between 1985 and 1986 he had completed a body of work which was exhibited in a downtown Philadelphia gallery. The show sold out and bought him public recognition and critical acclaim. Within two years his work was exhibited at the prestigious Rosenfeld Gallery in Philadelphia, where his shows continue to sell out.

Lewis' work is now part of major private collections and is displayed in galleries throughout the United States. Honoring Lewis, Barbara Bader's History on American Picture books will be including a description of Earl and his achievements as an artist. Currently, Earl Lewis is teaching illustration at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and is a member of The Society of Illustrators in New York City.

E. B. Lewis is the illustrator of two Coretta Scott King Honor Books, Rows and Piles of Coins and Bat Boy and his Violin. He lives in New Jersey.



Jacqueline Woodson currently resides in Brooklyn, in the state of New York.

Great quality  Jan 15, 2008
I have looked everywhere for this book and I bought it used and in GREAT condition.
 
Disturbing subjet  Apr 10, 2007
So I take this to mean that we've reached the point of moral decay that it's perfectly normal for daddy to be a convict in prison? I bought the book, hoping praying that there was a punch line. The punch line is this book is being serious.
 
A Beautiful Book About A Sensitive Subject  Dec 22, 2005
Family is a familiar theme of children's books but this one tackles the difficult task of honoring the incarcerated father.
The strength of a grandmother's love holds this family intact.
Handled delicately and told from the point of view of a child confident that her father loves and misses her. Excitement mounts as the girl prepares to visit her dad. Beautiful language describes the bus ride and camaraderie of the passangers. The illustrations are amazing in their attention to detail. Its the little things in the background, a calendar, girl's drawings taped to wall of her dad's cell that make this book so engaging.

Neither melodramatic nor sugar coated, Visiting Day presents a snapshot of a family with candor and grace.

Note to teachers, mentors and counselors, this is a perfect addtion to your "sensitive" book collection. Wonderful for starting a discussion with older children but best used as a one on one read aloud.
 
A Special Day with Dad  Jun 23, 2003
VISITING DAY is a book about special day each month for the little girl who narrates this story. It is a day when she gets to dress up, look pretty, ride a bus with her grandmother, eat chicken and other goodies, but most of all she gets to visit her incarcerated father. Told and illustrated from a child's point of view, the story shows how children have unconditional love for their parents, even if a parent has made a mistake.

Jacqueline Woodson has taken a controversial topic and made an extraordinary book. The story does not criticize, but instead shows love, and James Ransome's true to life illustrations adds to the happy feeling and tone of the book. Although this is an excellent book for all children, I highly recommend this book to any child who is forced to deal with having a family member incarcerated.
