Love to Mama

by Pat Mora

Published by Lee & Low, 2001
32 pages
ISBN: 1-58430-019-1

Ages 10 and older

This collection, which features contributions from 13 Latino poets, celebrates mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers--woman who nurtured, embraced, loved, and inspired the writers. Some poems are in English, some in Spanish and English, enriched with the flavor of words like "abuela," "caballera," "Mami," and "M'ija." These personal poems carry meaning that transcends the individual and culture. There is something for all older children and teens to take from the experience of reading or listening to the poems. Each two-page spread features a single poem accompanied by a bold, brightly colored, stylized painting. The artwork is pencil, cut-paper, and gouache, with additional enhancement on computer. CCBC categories: Poetry.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
