Even though this book was suggested reading for children, I bought it for my husband and he really enjoyed it. He has bad
eyesight so it helped him.

I picked up "A Nation's Hope" after seeing that it was named one of the NY Times Best Children's Illustrated Books of 2011 and am very happy I did as it is an excellent read both for children and adults alike. A great book to read with your children particularly to get their reaction to such an important time in both US and world history. The author Matt De La Pena does a great job explaining to the young reader who Joe Louis was and the importance of his famous fight with Max Schmeling. He underscores that it is not only a boxing match but also something the whole world paid attention to given the ongoing WWII. Finally, the author does a great job alluding to the ongoing racial tensions in America at the time which makes for another good lesson for children. I enjoyed the book very much as did my 12 year old son and the illustrations were phenomenal.
De la Pena's story paints a picture in our minds of racism and pride; Nelson's superb illustrations make those images appear on paper. Readers will learn about (and a few will remember) the hope placed on Louis by so many Americans, a hope that he would be victorious in the ring over the Germam boxer, Max Schmeling. How was it that this black man did not enjoy the same rights as the white Americans who rooted for him? Did they worship Joe Louis one day and turn a blind eye to him the next? These are questions that might be posed in the classroom or discussed parent to child. This book is a delight to be shared.
