In Daddy's Arms I AM TALL Illustrated by: Javaka Steptoe - Poetry Anthology
This book is a collection of poems celebrating African American fathers. This assortment of poems revels the powerful and influential bond between father and child, acknowledging that family is our greatest gift. This book of poetry is even good for small child; even though they may not be able to read the poetry, the illustrations are so great that if the child is read to, they will be able to see the poem in the illustration. One of my favorite poems in this book is"Tickle, Tickle" by Dakari Hru, it was written to remember all those fun moments when children were tickled by their fathers.
