Fourteen simple yet resonant poems, each written in the first person, celebrate the power of childhood from the perspectives of a rich variety of cultures. Echoing the diversity of the poets' voices, each illustration has been created in a different technique, such as wood-block carving, silk screen, watercolor and painted fabric. The words and images of these poets and artists are woven into a collection that also features a poem by a child and a piece of original artwork by a class of elementary school students. This very special book is sure to speak to young children who are just beginning to unravel the mystery of what sets them apart and what draws them together. Includes poems by Langston Hughes, A.A. Milne, Felice Holman, Karla Kuskin, Ashley Bryan, Keiko Narahashi and Elisa Kleven
