*** SEPTEMBER'S BOOK OF THE MONTH***
Make Meatballs Sing was our first book of the month!
We think this book is a delight and want to sing its praises. Not just because its about the interesting & great life of Sister Corita Kent. This book is full of the inspiration, love and powerful messages she sent out into the world through her teaching & art practice. Just as relevant today, as when she was making her work. Every school should have this book on their shelves to inspire a new generation of artists and thinkers, we hope everyone plorks after reading this and remembers...
"Nothing is a mistake. There's no win and no fail. there's only make".
Deeply influenced by her religious beliefs and fired up by the social justice causes of her day, Corita Kent lived a remarkable life as a nun, educator, designer, artist, and activist. This story from well-known author Matthew Burgess, vibrantly illustrated by artist Kara Kramer, draws readers into the life of a singular woman whose work and commitment invite us all to seek joy in the everyday, to observe the world with open eyes, and to question and see beyond the existing framework of society.
This beautiful biography, made in close collaboration with the Corita Art Center, includes reproductions of Corita’s works, a chronology, and author and illustrator notes.
