Honey, I Love - Eloise Greenfield, Diane and Leo Dillon

Eloise Greenfield’s classic collection of poems is celebrating 25 years in print: a quarter-decade of bouncing rhymes and rhythms that roll off the tongue so well they beg to be read out loud. At the core of this slim but powerful collection are tales of the everyday joys and struggles of growing up. Full of heart, the book ends with the powerful proclamation: “And Honey, I Love (HarperTrophy, $6.99) ME too”. Diane and Leo Dillon co-illustrate the poems, bringing them to life with detailed charcoal drawings of African-American girls that are overlaid with simple sketches. Thoughtful and true, this coming-of-age collection is an important addition to any young person’s bookshelf. Ages 8 and up.  - AJK
