Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander and Caldecott Honoree Melissa Sweet take us on a poetic and beautiful journey between the pages of a book in this picture book.


The text of this book is a poem, and the book will feature a gatefold page!

Find a tree—a

black tupelo or

dawn redwood will do—and

plant yourself.

(It’s okay if you prefer a stoop, like Langston Hughes.)

With these words, an adventure begins—an adventure into the world of reading. Kwame Alexander’s evocative poetry and Melissa Sweet’s lush artwork come together to take you on a sensory journey between the pages of a book.
