Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great book about fathers.  Jan 25, 2008
This book contains a collection of African American Poems about fathers. We also enjoyed this one quite a bit. While poetry is not my 8 year old son's favorite medium to read these were easy to understand and in my opinion really did relate to people of all colors - anyone with a father. He did enjoy several of them a lot and commented on them. I have it recommended for ages 4-8 years.

 
A wonderful collection of poems  Apr 22, 2005
My sons and I share a love of the verse in the poem "Tickle, Tickle," which is our favorite in this beautifully illustrated collection of poetry.

The poem offers students an opportunity to look into the African American culture. The poem My Granddaddy is My Daddy Too represents a very true to life situation in a positive light.

I AM TALL  Jul 31, 2001
This collection of poems honoring fathers and grandfathers effectively opens with the Ashanti proverb, "When you follow in the path of your father, you learn to walk like him." The proverb sets the tone for the rest of the book. The poems offer brilliant, descriptive language that most readers, who share the same wonderful thoughts of their own fathers, can quickly identify. The book includes a variety of poems, each with its own perspective on fathers. "Tickle, Tickle" is a fun poem author Dakari Hru wrote in remembrance of all those amusing moments children share with their fathers as they are tickled. "The things in Black Men's Closets" is a more serious poem describing a father's clothing he selects to wear as he gets ready for a funeral. Steptoe skillfully and attractively illustrated all of the poems. He artistically created his illustrations using a combination of painting and collages made from a variety of materials. Each illustration is bright, colorful, and distinctive.
