Hip hop poetry for rhythmic kids

- includes audio CD

Poetry is filled with rhythm and rhyme, but sometimes it isn't obvious. However, if you can listen to a poet reading his or her work, a poem suddenly becomes alive in exciting and amazing ways. In this award-winning collection, edited by Nikki Giovanni, you can hear all the emotions and meanings behind each word, making poetry more relevant and vital than ever. Stand-out performances include those by Eloise Greenfield, Langston Hughes, Sugarhill Gang, James Berry, Oscar Brown Jr, Young MC, Maya Angelou and Sterling A. Brown.

It's a book that will turn everyone into a lover of poetry!

Thanks to Liberty at A Different Booklist for recommending this title!
