School Library Journal - 10/01/2019 Gr 3–8—This vibrant quilt of poetry and art features the works of 30 unique poets and artists from a wide array of cultural backgrounds. Poems recount the writers' memories of their family traditions and how their experiences growing up in America as second-generation children often shaped their views of their heritage and cultural identity. Contributors such as Kwame Alexander, Jorge Tetl Argueta, Nick Bruel, and Janet S. Wong offer a varied approach to poetic form, allowing readers to experience rhythm, meter, and verse. Illustrations using all types of media sing through the pages. Each poet's work is preceded by a statement addressing what poetry means to them and how its format can tap into a person's heart and soul. VERDICT Pairing the works of some of today's most important voices in children's poetry with illustrations by artists of equal talent makes this is a must-have for all elementary and middle grade collections.—Liz Allen, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
