Fifteen poems by Langston Hughes are lovingly illustrated by artist Ashley Bryan in brightly colored, cut-paper collage. There is such jubilance in Bryan’s images, which singularly celebrate the natural world about which Hughes was writing in many of the poems. There are also beautiful, brown-skinned children, whom both poet and artist have strived to affirm. To hold this book is to feel joy. (Ages 3–10)
