The East-West House

By The Roanoke Times

I have been an admirer of sculptor and designer Isamu Noguchi’s work for the better part of my life. Reading this book for children about the details of his childhood made me pause….The story is not too long, but the rich illustrations reflecting eastern art makes a book that children will spend time with. The author did a fine job depicting Noguchi as a child of mixed heritage without being distracting….It is a pleasure to have a book that conveys so much in a way that speaks to children and will hopefully inspire them to learn more about this wonderful artist.
