Custom Program Description
Join Youth Services staff member Matia Stewart on Facebook or YouTube as she reads Parker Looks Up: An Extraordinary Moment by Parker Curry and Jessica Curry. When Parker Curry was a toddler, she visited the National Portrait Gallery. She became mesmerized by Amy Sherald's portrait of Michelle Obama, who she thought was a queen. This book is based on the photograph that went viral after a fellow museum-goer took a picture of Parker looking up in awe. This inspiring story was illustrated by Brittany Jackson.
