This is the story of John Henry I m sure most people know this one Julius and Jerry ot together to make this their version of the famous folktale I like the tone of the book it s bright and happy and larger than I like the tone of the book it s bright and happy and larger than I even like so many of his word choices The mountain was as hard as anger There were wonderful phrases like that I don t know why but I don t really care for this version of the tale It s not bad simply not for me There are several other tellings that I feel are much betterThe kids enjoyed this The nephew thought it was cool how he could sing and beat stones and rainbows happened He Life Changing Smiles gave this 3 stars The niece enjoyed the rainbows but she wasn t too into the story Sheave this 2 stars Something is up with her and I don t know what it is Anyway With regard to Julius Lester s 1994 John Henry it is in particular illustrator Jerry Pinkney s 1995 Caldecott Honour winning accompanying illustrations which I have always found and ever since first reading the book as a library copy a couple of years ago very much and visually impressive expressive For although Pinkney s pictorial renderings are at times perhaps almost a trifle too overly busy my eyes and attention span and sometimes do seem to obtain even some modern anachronisms their minute details are indeed both lushly rendered and also very much and successfully mirror Julius Lester s printed words h This is a very nice version of the John Henry story I don t remember ever hearing about Ferret Faced Freddy and the bet that John Henry made with him which then turned him into Frederick the Friendly This also tells the story of John Henry clearing a boulder that dynamite couldn t break and racing a steam drill to create a tunnel through a mountain One disadvantage of such a comprehensive story though is that it is too long for me to read aloud as part of a library lessonI loved the colorful way the story was written with lots of comparisons using nature For example he was so fast the wind was out of breath trying to keep up with him Or His voice sounded like bat wings on tombstones speaking of Ferret Faced FreddyThe illustrations fit very well with the story but for some reason they just are. With his two sledgehammers pulverizing boulders John Henry races a steam drill tunneling through a mountain It's a deadly. John HenryAt a price and cannot be sustained forever Lester s poetic and poignant retelling in this picture book captures that feeling for me while Pinkney s Innocent Sins (Harlequin Presents, gorgeous watercolor illustrations ably bring out the beauty and power of the central figure s story The artwork here was definitely worthy of the Caldecott Honor it received I ve long been aware of this retelling and amlad to have finally picked it up and read it I will have to seek out the one from Ezra Jack Keats and see how it compares Recommended to all young tall tale lovers as well as to fellow Pinkney fans What a wonderful book Enjoyed by all my children young and older a tall tale about John Henry We children young and older a tall tale about John Henry We about Tall Tales in Traditional Literature and in the story of John Henry in History class so this was a Only a Whisper great addition to those lessons My kids loved it The pictures were big and detailed and of course the preschoolers loved the trains A little on the long side at least a level 4 reading level But the writing Oh the writing Just beautiful Next to the mountain he didn t look much bigger than a wish that wasn toing to come trueThese and many other analogies of such an unusual flavor made this book a must have to our home school library Highly recommended The United States has some wonderful folk heroes who are fading from memory Julius Lester revives the story of African American John Henry with an updated retellingJohn Henry is a mythical American perhaps loosely based on a real person children should learn about so I m pleased to see a few of his stories being retold in this volume his birth and prodigious Copper Lake Secrets growth building a road and hammering through a mountain I was less enthused with the odd insertion of modern touches a swimming pool and Jacuzzi added to the house into a story dating to the late 1800s Still it s an enjoyable read with fun metaphors and similes interesting stories a likable character and attractive artwork Note John Henry is an admirable hero and children may be distressed when he dies Use your judgment with sensitive children However the book handles it well and it could be a teaching moment with meaningful discussion with the right children this book isood but it isn t my favorit. Nature yet as familiar as an older brother Pinkney's stunning art shows John Henry's energy bursting from nature Full col. ,

N t my favorite I can see that they are very well done and I m not disputing that they merit a Caldecott honor they are very well done and I m not disputing that they merit a Caldecott honor just aren t my favorite Not sure why I really liked Jerry Pinkney s illustrations in Noah s ArkThe library book that I read came as part of a kit with an audio cassette narrated by Samuel L Jackson The audio was reat Samuel L Jackson does a wonderful job with the narration and I really enjoyed the background music and sound effects that went with it The audio really added to my experience with the book An interesting introduction to the legend of John Henry although for whatever reason I had the song Big John stuck in my head before reading this which isn t the same John John Henry is one of those little known folk heroes and I wish there was on him than there tends to be Unfortunately this tends to be one of those books that is i looooooooove the detail in this story i dont want to spoil it but its just reat I love this story I listened to the audio version Samuel l Jackson narrated it it was fabulous from now on when I have a difficult task to perform I m fabulous from now on when I have a difficult task to perform I m say oh john henry ive me strength to do this Author Julius Lester and illustrator Jerry Pinkney join forces in this lovely picture book retelling of the tall tale of John Henry the legendary African American steel driver whose contest with a steam powered drilling machine has been immortalized in American folk music Extraordinary from the moment he was born John Henry amazed the woodland animals his parents and the sun and moon themselves Eventually setting out to make his way in the world he performed marvelous feats before eventually coming to the mountain in West performed marvelous feats before eventually coming to the mountain in West where the railroad needed to et through It was here he triumphed in his race with the machine only to die in the endI have always thought of the story of legendary hero John Henry as being a meditation on humanity and the human spirit on our strength and weakness our ability to perform extraordinary deeds and ultimately our mortality Set in a time of increasing mechanization the story both upholds the idea of the human being as superior to the machine and undermines it by highlighting that our reat deeds must come. Contest of man vs machine written with such power that this African American folk hero becomes as awesome as a force of. ,
