God Bless the Child
Billie Holiday (au); Arthur Herzog, Jr. (au); Jerry Pinckney (il). The song “God Bless the Child” was first performed by legendary jazz vocalist Billie Holiday in 1939 & remains one of her enduring masterpieces: “Mama may have, Papa may have, But God bless the child That’s got his own! That’s got his own.” In this picture book interpretation, renowned illus. Jerry Pinckney has created images of a family moving from the rural South to the urban North during the Great Migration that reached its peak in the 1930s. The song’s message of self-reliance still speaks to us today but resonates even stronger in its historical context. This extraordinary book stands as a tribute to all those who dared so much to get their own. A CD of Billie Holiday’s timeless recording of “God Bless the Child” is included to enjoy along with the book.
