Fourteen simple yet resonant poems, each written in the first person, celebrate the power of childhood from the perspectives of a rich variety of cultures. Echoing the diversity of the poets' voices, each illustration has been created in a different technique, such as wood-block carving, silk screen, watercolor and painted fabric. The words and images of these poets and artists are woven into a collection that also features a poem by a child and a piece of original artwork by a class of elementary school students. This very special book is sure to speak to young children who are just beginning to unravel the mystery of what sets them apart and what draws them together. Includes poems by Langston Hughes, A.A. Milne, Felice Holman, Karla Kuskin, Ashley Bryan, Keiko Narahashi and Elisa Kleven

About the Author:

Children's Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman is the author of more than thirty-five books for children, including the critically acclaimed A House Is a House for Me, which won a National Book Award, the New York Times bestselling You Read to Me, I'll Read to You, and the Sing-Along Stories series.

From Publishers Weekly:

The 14 works in this outstanding multicultural anthology will introduce young readers to a generous range of artistic and literary styles. James Houston's transcription of an Eskimo chant, for example, is accompanied by Dale DeArmond's starkly effective black-and-white wood engraving of a child whose hands flutter and wave "like the wings of a bird"; Mary Austin's translation of a Chippewa song is paired with Bernie Fuchs's batik-like oil painting of a child who dreams of being like the heroes "of great deeds, of ancient days." What unifies this remarkable collection is Hoberman's ( A House Is a House for Me ) perceptive selection of works that focus on the ways in which all children possess traits that are distinctive to them as individuals and common to them as human beings. From the brilliant color of Ashley Bryan's abstract painting to the cheeky humor of Susan Meddaugh's cartoons, from the simplicity of Felice Holman's "Who Am I?" to Toni de Gerez's lyrical rendering of a Toltec poem that offers a song "born in the house of butterflies," this eclectic and joyful volume underscores Hoberman's conviction that " every you everywhere in the world is an I; / Every I in the world is a you! " Ages 4-8.
