Mother PoemsBook - 2009
A young African American girl thinks of her mom as a superhero, a doctor, her North Star. She feels loved in her mother's arms and capable of conquering the world. But when her beloved role model unexpectedly dies, she cannot even cry; sadness is too overwhelming. As she struggles with grief, she must learn how to carry on while keeping the memory of her mother very much alive inside her heart. These poignant poems, together with folk-art images, powerfully capture the complicated feelings of someone who shows great hope, strength, and will to overcome.--From publisher description.
