Shades of Love

Hip Hop Speaks to Children
Nikki Giovanni
Sourcebooks Jabberwocky

I haven't read this but I was excited when I read Adromeda's review. Have you read it? Is it on your wish list? It's National Poetry Month. I thought this title was a great way to kick off the celebration.

I am glad they get the chance to hear the included works by Eloise Greenfield, Jacqueline Woodson, A Tribe Called Quest, Gary Soto, Kanye West, Sugarhill Gang, Queen Latifah, Oscar Brown, Jr., Walter Dean Meyers, and Paul Laurence Dunbar among others. ~Andromeda

Listen to Nikki Giovanni talk about the importance of this text.

Hip Hop Speaks to Children is such a great book. Its a great mix of old school and new school CD would be great to play in the car, for everyone to enjoy
