The Sweet and Sour Animal Book by Langston Hughes

Cover Image

Short and simple poems about animals cover each letter of the alphabet in this visually stunning book.   Younger kids will enjoy the rhythmic verse, while beginning readers will love being able to read the poems themselves.   And what a fun way to read about animals, old and new.  The illustrations were done by students from the Harlem School of the Arts, and are brightly colored and visually arresting, set against a plain background of either black or white.  This is a fun book full of poetry and color, an enjoyable read for all ages.
