What it’s about: A book of illustrated poems for children about the many ways to care for others and be cared for.
What made me pick it up: It’s by Nikki Giovanni. I cannot emphasize enough how you need to sample her work if you haven’t yet.
My favorite parts: These poems are vibrantly illustrated, so if the words weren’t amazing enough (which they definitely are) you also have wonderful, colorful illustrations to accompany.
Who it’s great for: Littles who want an engaging introduction to poetry.
