Lee, Spike, and Tonya Lewis Lee. Giant Steps to Change the World Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers 2011 $16.99. Content G-Picture Book. This book is an empowering book about people that set goals and reach them. The pictures are very bright and engaging. The book makes vague references to historic milestones in U.S and African-American history and does not do a good job of explaining any of the events it is referencing. It would be confusing to a child because of the abstract nature of the text. NO. Shauna, Reading teacher.
