Summary
A collection of poems exploring the theme of African-American identity
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

An award-winning, beautiful picture book—poetry and art exploring issues of African American identity. A favorite book to share in schools and homes.

Included in Brightly.com's 2017 list of recommended diverse poetry picture books for kids, and a Coretta Scott King Honor Book.

"A must," according to Kirkus. "Delicately interwoven images. Laden with meaning, the poetry is significant and lovely. Cooper's paintings, with vibrant, unsentimentalized characters in earth tone illumined with gold, are warm, contemplative."

Booklist commented: "Poems rooted in home, family, and the African-American experience. Highly readable and attractive."

Added Brightly.com: "Each poem has a unique message and theme and is accompanied by beautiful brown and gold earth-tone illustrations related to broomwheat tea."
