Read full description of the books:
Soul Looks Back in Wonder is an illustrated collection of poems that celebrate the African-American spirit and are dedicated to "our precious young African sisters and brothers, who are our today and our tomorrow." The poems by thirteen major poets, such as Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, and Walter Dean Myers, were written to accompany Tom Feelings' stunning collage illustrations:
Since I don't read poetry on a regular basis, I probably don't know how to appreciate it properly. Still, I found most of the poems evocative and thought-provoking (and they match the illustrations beautifully!), and three of them really spoke to me: Darryl Holmes' "Look at Us," Langston Hughes' "To You," and Maya Angelou's "I Love the Look of Words."
Here's my favorite:
"To You" by Langston Hughes
To sit and dream, to sit and read,
To sit and learn about the world
Outside our world of here and now --
Our problem world --
To dream of vast horizons of the soul
Through dreams made whole,
Unfettered, free -- help me!
All you who are dreamers too,
Help me to make
Our world anew.
I reach out my dreams to you.
