The poems inÂ I Love Me Some Me! Positivity Poems for Our YoungStars
provide a literary and literacy boost up! The poems are designed for marinating & masticating!
They are intended to stimulate higher ordered thinking in youth and to help them process a lot of what is happening in our "post-racial" world today. I Love Me Some ME! Positivity Poems for Our YoungStars opens dialogue for assisting youth - and others - in self-discovery and pride within themselves, their heritage and contributions to the world.
The poems are meant to be read orally and followed by discussions where the participants are encouraged to speak their minds in an accepting atmosphere of tolerance. Some of the poems will require more dissection than others depending on the ages and level of understanding of the readers. Many of the poems are playful. Some are "deep". Others are sobering. All are provocative. PROMOTE LITERACY! KEEP MINDS LIT!Attention please!
I have no control over what books are shown under the pages featuring my books for youth. "Urban" literature has come to mean adult reading that leans toward writing I feel is not the type I would suggest toward a young audience. A lot of it seems to have no real value other than getting some youth more interested in reading.
