I'm making my way through the New York Times Best Illustrated Books of 2014 and knew I had to feature this book on Poetry Friday!
Upon awakening we hear the song of our neighbour's rooster
A beautiful concert to the ears of merchants
Parading the streets of my country
In this beautiful setting stretches dazzling greenery
where we find small curved houses,
flourishing mango trees at the end of lanes,
and ripening oranges
make me want to visit Haiti and write about the beauty of my own country. This picture book is a must for every classroom and library. Perfect for writing workshop.
