Jake Makes a World follows the creative adventures of the young  Jacob Lawrence as he finds inspiration in the vibrant colors and  characters of his community in Harlem. From his mother's apartment,  where he is surrounded by brightly colored walls with intricate  patterns; to the streets full of familiar and not-so-familiar faces,  sounds, rhythms, and smells; to the art studio where he goes each day  after school to transform his everyday world on an epic scale, Jake  takes readers on an enchanting journey through the bustling sights and  sounds of his neighborhood.
