Item Description...
'The distinguished novelist has culled his personal collection of turn-of-the-century photographs of African-American children and composed the verses that accompany this enchanting selection of youngsters.' ---NYT. 'A unique celebration of the continuum of human life and of childhood in all its robustness, fragility, and evanescent beauty. . . . An exquisite album. The 42 superbly reproduced black-and-white and sepia prints radiate intensely with the personalities of their subjects.' ---SLJ. 'The poet, inspired by the photographs, affirms the black experience in a lyrical, tender, and sometimes humorous voice.' ---H.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful book!  Sep 27, 2005
I ordered this book for my 8 year old and we both love it. It arrived in a timely fashion and we are very pleased with our purchase.
Children are Angels  Mar 1, 2003
Walter Dean Myers has put together a unique collection of poetry highlighting African
American childhood. Instead of using traditional illustrations, Myers gathered a
collection of turn of the century photographs of African American children in places
ranging from flea markets to museums. Each of the poems seems to capture the very
essence of the corresponding photograph and bring life to the nameless faces within the pictures. I enjoyed all of the poems in this collection, my personal favorites were "Love that Boy" and "Pretty Little Black Girl" which were tributes to Black boys and girls respectively.

While I enjoyed this collection, I believe this is a book that will be enjoyed more by parents than by their children. Still this book is a wonderful tribute to ordinary African American children and our rich cultural heritage. The stunning photographs along with delightful poems make this book worth checking out.

It's a wonderful make you feel good book. A great gift idea for all ages. The photos are beautiful and heart warming. I have given this book as a gift many times and everyone adores it.
Wow!  Feb 3, 2002
Just think, if I hadn't wandered by the poetry section and decided to look at the books, I might have never discovered this gem. I only found this because of a student's request for rhyming books and an admiration of Waler Dean Myers. Thanks fate.
