A collection of twenty-one inspirational poems features illustrations made of sewn-fabric collages.


This treasured poetry collection by Coretta Scott King Award-winning collaborators Eloise Greenfield and Jan Spivey Gilchrist journeys to a place where words, creativity, and imagination abound.

Featuring twenty-one poems illustrated with sewn fabric collages, this tribute to the written word invites readers to look within themselves to discover what inspires them.

Eloise Greenfield, winner of the National Council of Teachers of English Excellence in Poetry for Children Award, says: 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."

Includes an author's note, a table of contents, sources, and an index.
