Children will be encouraged to put their words to poetry and beats. Teachers will be encouraged to allow the artists to speak to children. --Diane Chen, School Library Journal blog "Practically Paradise" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hip Hop Speaks to Children is a celebration of poetry with a beat. Poetry can have both a rhyme and a rhythm. Sometimes it is obvious; sometimes it is hidden. But either way, make no mistake, poetry is as vibrant and exciting as it gets. And when you find yourself clapping your hands or tapping your feet, you know you''ve found poetry with a beat! Like Poetry Speaks to Children , the New York Times Bestselling classic poetry book and CD that started it all, Hip Hop Speaks to Children is meant to be the beginning of a journey of discovery. READ more than 50 remarkable poems and songs! HEAR poetry''s rhymes and rhythms from Queen Latifah to Gwendolyn Brooks, Langston Hughes to A Tribe Called Quest and more! * Also hear part of Martin Luther Kind''s original "I Have a Dream" speech, followed by the remarkable live performance of the speech by Nikki Giovanni, Oni Lasana and Val Gray Ward. * The Hip Hop Speaks to Children CD contains more than 30 performances , either by the artists who created them, or as unique interpretations by admiring poets and artists. DISCOVER Langston Hughes''s elegant gospel "The Negro Speaks of Rivers," A Tribe Called Quest''s playful "Ham ''N'' Eggs," Sterling A. Brown''s hard-luck "Long Track Blues," Gwendolyn Brooks''s wake-up call "We Real Cool," Kanye West''s lovely "Hey Mama," and Martin Luther King Jr.''s awe-inspiring "I Have a Dream." This is a collection of rhymes and rhythms unlike any other poetry book!

A great book for both teachers and parents." -- Valerie Lewis, owner of Hicklebee''s children''s bookstore "The poems, the artwork, the CD...all complement each other to create a wonderful experience ." --Becky Laney, Becky Laney''s Books blog "Love this book. I think it is a K-8 must-have for classrooms and libraries. Like I said it is packed and it may be (at first) intimidating to young readers. But, once they hear some of the audio, spend time withthe illustrations, and experience some of the poetry, I think it will become a favorite." --Franki Sibberson, A Year of Reading blog "Hip Hop Speaks to Childrenis a wonderfully composed collection of poems from writers like Eloise Greenfield to late rapper and poet, Tupac Shakur. ... Whether youreadpoetry or you hear it in a rap song, Giovanni''s genius endeavor will inspire children of all ages tohave fun while listening to poetry. Rapispoetry, right?" --Amy Bowllan, Amy Bowllan''s Blog (a School Library Journal Blog) " I highly recommend this one for all collections . If the title didn''t include the word "children" it''d be an excellent book all the way to high school. My coworkers and I are already talking about doing a Hip Hop poetry story time for our elementaryschool kids." --Jennifer Rothschild, Biblio File blog "This is an incredibly powerful, beautiful and important book . Both the book and CD are stellar in quality and diversity. The artwork is amazing and I find myself pulling it out of the shelf over and over for just one more re-read. The grandchildren (ages 3 and 5) love it as well and ask to hear the CD while they pore over the pages and take breaks prancing around the room andsinging to the beat. They KNOW all the poems in the book and learned them in a relatively short time, which I attribute to the power of the beat, and all the artists; the poets, the illustrators, the singers and spoken word artists. What an astounding thing when a book moves children so that they LEARN - quickly and enjoyably. This book is for all ages and I can''t recommend it highly enough ." --Gina Ruiz, Blogcritics Magazine
