Hip Hop Speaks to Children: A Celebration of Poetry with a Beat
Hip Hop Speaks to Children: A Celebration of Poetry with a Beat by Nikki Giovanni (Hardcover)
Hip Hop Speaks to Children is the most essential poetry purchase
to make this year.
The poetry is enough.
The illustrations are enough.
The CD is enough.
Together, this book is a treasure of which you cannot get enough.
We shall accomplish much this year. Children will be encouraged to put their words to poetry and beats. Teachers will be encouraged to allow the artists to speak to children.
