A Poem as Big as New York City
A Poem as Big as New York City: Little Kids Write About the Big Apple
Edited by Teachers Writers Collaborative
Illustrated by Masha D’yans
Foreword by Walter Dean Myers
This delightful book-length poem spreads the wonder and joy that is New York, as told through the words of its children. In a series of workshops, New York City public school students were challenged to write about what it was like to live, learn, and play in New York City, and their poems were collected and edited into this book.
Lyrical, heartfelt and bursting with imagination, their words provide an honest, kid’s-eye view of the melting pot of cultures, ideas, and excitement found within the five boroughs of New York City.
