New and Selected PoemsBook - 2003
A collection of twenty-one inspirational poems features illustrations made of sewn-fabric collages.
The words can come from a memory, or a dream, or something I see or hear or wonder about or imagine. . . . Maybe there's a place where words live, where our minds and hearts can go and find them when we want to write or read. I like to imagine that there is such a place. I call it "The Land of Words."
In this collection of twenty-one poems, National Council of Teachers of English Excellence in Poetry for Children Award winner Eloise Greenfield journeys to a place where words, creativity, and imagination abound. Featuring the poems "In the Land of Words," "Books," and "Poem," as well as favorites such as "Nathaniel's Rap" and "Way Down in the Music," this tribute to the written word invites readers to look within themselves and discover what inspires them.
A picture book with illustrations made of sewn-fabric collages offers a collection of twenty-one inspirational poems, such as "Nathaniel's Rap" and "Twister" from the award-winning author of African Dream.
