Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Medina riffs off several poetry titles, including Wallace Steven's Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird and Raymond R. Patterson's Twenty-Six Ways of Looking at a Black Man, to present 13 poems that introduce a group of black boys, who, he says in his notes, could be considered an endangered species. Writing in a form of poetry called tanka, Medina shows readers boys who go to church, flirt with girls, patrol the hood, and contemplate life. Each poem is illustrated by a different artist, including some of the most familiar names in children's literature for instance, Floyd Cooper and Javaka Steptoe but also illustrators just starting out. The very different artistic renderings, which range from solid to psychedelic, all catch the eye. Though short (only 31 syllables over 5 lines), the poems pack a punch and are a great introduction to reading poetry and the art of writing it. Teachers and other adults will find many ways to use this with children.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A baker's dozen of artists-Cozbi A. Cabrera, Ekua Holmes, Javaka Steptoe, and others-contribute bold and stylistically diverse images to accompany Medina's five-line poems, which reflect the lives, dreams, and worries of male black children. Boys of varying ages appear, allowing readers to see both the unvarnished joy of early childhood and the worries that later crop up. Embraced by his parents, a well-dressed toddler grins broadly at readers in a scene drawn with characteristic warmth by Floyd Cooper ("Fly bow tie like wings/ Brown eyes of a brown angel"), but an older boy carrying a bag of groceries home radiates unease in Robert Liu-Trujillo's painting ("Payday don't pay much/ Every breath I take is taxed"). The tone of Medina's poems, however, largely remains encouraging as he emphasizes the multi- faceted nature of the black youth he honors. Ages 6-11. (Feb.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
