really liked it
bookshelves: k-2nd, poetry, nonfiction, african-american
Read in September, 2010

Age: Kindergarten through 5th grade
Media: Collage--torn paper, cut paper with pastel, applique, found art
Illustrator Style: The diverse collage pictures celebrate the diversity of themes presented by the poets and help capture the eye of a child throughout the longer poems (although they're all pretty short).

A collection of poetry about African American children and their fathers. With a few challenging words, these poems have rhythm and concrete situations that children can follow including a father’s embrace, walking to church, reassuring love, a father’s influence and inspiration, and many more. The accompanying collage pictures add depth and interest to each poem’s story.
