About Charles R. Smith Jr.

CHARLES R. SMITH JR. says that while growing up in California, he read anything he could get his hands on. "Reading books filled with stories and poems inspired me to write my own," he says. "The more I read, the more I wrote. And if I wasn't reading a book. I was playing a sport: I played everything, particularly basketball, and spent many afternoons on the court, perfecting my jump shot." While working on his high school yearbook as a writer, Charles R. Smith Jr. was introduced to photography and immediately decided to make a career out of it. He graduated from photography school and headed to New York to pursue his dream. "I continued with my writing, and, with a heavy influence of rap music, began writing more poetry instead of stories," he says. "Now, I have combined my photographic skills with my love of reading, writing, and sports to create an exciting career for myself!" Among the books the poet-photographer has written and illustrated is Rimshots: Basketball Pix, Rolls, and Rhythms, which was selected as an American Library Association Notable Children's Book.

.” Toes, cheeks, bellies, hands, each are featured in gentle rhythmic language—“Creamy caresses of soft peanut butter feet, turn tiny little toes into sweet and tasty treats”—which elevates the book out of the cute-photos-of-babies pack.
