Pulsing with imagination and hope, this illustrated edition of Langston Hughes’s classic poem “Dream Variation” follows a young black boy living in a segregated town in the 1950s. As he observes the injustices around him, the boy imagines a world in which he and his family can live without fear. Daniel Miyares’s breathtaking watercolors depict the boy’s daydreams of soaring on giant birds, drinking from a stream, and lying in the grass—all with a loving, racially integrated group of friends. Young readers will immediately respond to the beauty, pathos, and hope of the boy’s imaginings as he declares, That Is My Dream! (Schwartz & Wade, $17.99). Ages 6-9.
