Ladies First MORE PRAISE FOR HIP HOP SPEAKS TO CHILDREN "With its archival recordings of poems read by the poets themselves, ["Hip Hop"] reminds everyone that poetry springs from an oral tradition."
--"Publishers Weekly" "This is the way to get children interested in reading and loving poetry. ... 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 PDF 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 with the 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 Children is a wonderfully composed collection of poems from writers like Eloise Greenfield to late rapper and poet, Tupac Shakur. ... Whether you read poetry or you hear it in a rap song, Giovanni's genius endeavor will inspire ePub children of all ages to have fun while listening to poetry. Rap is poetry, 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 elementary school kids."
"--Jennifer Rothschild, Biblio File blog" "This is an incredibly powerful, beautiful and important book. Both the book and CD are stellar in PDF 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 and singing 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 ePub 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."
