In The Cherished Tradition of Brown Angels and Glorious Angels, award-winning author Walter Dean Myers has once again combined his inimitable verse with his painstakingly assembled collection of antique photographs.
Speak softly in the morning
And light it with your smile
You will soft-speak "Mama"
And I will soft-speak "Child"
Or I will soft-speak "Bluebirds"
And you can soft-speak "Breeze"
And I will spend the summer day
With an angel on my knees
"It's the feelings of love that define the relationship between a mother and child", writes Walter Dean Myers. In this beautiful book he asks us to join him in a celebration of families from across the country, and across the years, and of mothers most of all.
