Description


" 'I, Too,' one of preeminent African American poet and intellectual Langston Hughes' most influential literary works, is reinstantiated and reinterpreted transhistorically in this board-book adaptation of the 1926 poem. The text reproduces the lines of the poem verbatim while Crumpton's vivid, saturated, digital illustrations present contemporary scenes of a young Black boy's life." --Kirkus Reviews

This beautifully illustrated board book brings to life I, Too, Langston Hughes' iconic American poem about perseverance.

Langston Hughes's inspirational poem I, Too is one of America's most famous. This board book edition brings Hughes's powerful declaration of resilience and hope to young readers.
