This classic picture book from Pulitzer Prize winning
poet Gwendolyn Brooks, paired with full-color illustrations by
Caldecott Honor artist Faith Ringgold, explores the lives and dreams of
the children who live together in an urban neighborhood.
Gwendolyn Brooks created thirty-four poems that celebrated the joy,
beauty, imagination, and freedom of childhood. Bronzeville Boys and
Girls features these timeless poems, which remind us that whether we
live in the Bronzeville section of Chicago or any other neighborhood,
childhood is universal in its richness of emotions and new experiences.
