Written by Spike Lee and Tonya Lee Lewis

Illustrated by Sean Qualls

This book is a tribute to giants — those who left a mark on the world.

This book is also about encouragement. It urges children to be like giants — to tamp down fear,  believe in themselves, and take first steps. They, too, can change the world. In fact, the book’s last words pose a question.

Now it’s your turn.

Everyone is waiting.

What’s your next step going to be?

I flipped through this book at a Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators conference in New York and couldn’t leave it there. I’ll be sure to pull it out when Simone and Nadia need a nudge from some giants.
