The poet and writer Lee Bennett Hopkins, who died earlier this year, compiles poems and illustrations from 30 individuals of diverse backgrounds, commemorating family, memory and life's happy and sad moments in I Remember: Poems and Pictures of Heritage. This rich collection is greatly enhanced by the creators' personal statements, professional biographies and photographs, both youthful and contemporary. Strong feelings and sweet memories abound in this exceptional assemblage. Young writers and artists will likely want to set down their own familial recollections after reading this uncommon anthology.
