" Great for lessons on author's choice and voice! " said.

" Very cute and informative biography/poetry book. Good way to get kids introduced to poetry. " said.

" I loved the writing style and illustrations but for some reason was finding this difficult to get through. " said.

" In this engaging biography, Sally Derby gets right to the heart of Paul Laurence Dunbar and his poetry. She chose to write directly to the reader and did an amazing job of drawing in that reader. The illustrations match the feel of the story perfectly. " said.

" Wow. Please go listen to this right now! I am not a person who enjoys nonfiction, but this was great. Bahni Turpin, of course, does a fantastic job and Dion Graham, who is an Audies Golden Voice, impressed me greatly as well. This is a biography that is meant to be listened to! " said.

" I enjoyed this biography of Dunbar. He is a poet I didn't know a lot about, and it was enjoyable to learn about his life. I did read many of the poems in here out loud, as it helped me understand them. My favorite was "A Negro Love Song" because it brought back memories of reciting that as a group with Ashley Bryan. " said.

" Reading Jump Back, Paul was like sitting around a rocking chair listening to Grandma or a teacher telling you a story. The narrative is done in such a way that it flows seamlessly into the poems and back again. The story of Paul Lauren Dunbar is told in an engaging way that is easy to understand. I received a copy of this book for award consideration " said.

" I had a hard time with this one. I loved that the author included so much of Dunbar's poetry. I really enjoyed getting to read them because I was not familiar with his poetry before reading this book. Overall, though, I thought the author was trying to hard to make the narrator come off as folksy and it was distracting at times. It also made the narration feel disjointed. I would be interested to read more about Paul Laurence Dunbar, though. " said.
