Run, don't walk to pick up this book. Every house should have a copy, with or without children. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the intro and first poem by Kwame take you to a place of gratitude and beauty. Will likely be one of our top picks of 2017.— Kirsten
Out of gratitude for the poet's art form, Newbery Award winning author and poet Kwame Alexander, along with Chris Colderley and Marjory Wentworth, present original poems that pay homage to twenty famed poets who have made the authors' hearts sing and their minds wonder. Stunning mixed-media images by Ekua Holmes, winner of a Caldecott Honor and a John Steptoe New Talent Illustrator Award, complete the celebration, inviting the viewer to listen, wonder, and perhaps even pick up a pen.
