Amazing Faces

By Great Kid Books

Amazing Faces is an inspiring collection of poems that children will love having at home and in school. Lee Bennett Hopkins, a tremendous anthologist and poet, has collected sixteen poems that celebrate the diversity of our schools and our communities in America today…The illustrations by Chris Soentpiet are wonderful, and will draw children who might be hesitant to try poetry into this collection. Soentpiet fills his illustrations with people from many different ethnic backgrounds, and he took careful effort to make the details reflect their ethnicity. Great stories are a mirror to see yourself, your friends, your family - this collection a wonderful way to share that experience with children. It is a collection I will share at home and at school with children, drawing them into poetry, and giving them a chance to see themselves and their friends reflected in wonderful artwork and poems. —Great Kid Books
