A remarkable and much-needed collection for the youngest lovers of poetry, Entrance Place of Wonders: Poems of the Harlem Renaissance features poems from the leaders of this cultural movement (1917-1935), such as Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Claude McKay, and James Weldon Johnson, as well as many newly discovered writers. These celebratory, life-affirming works will inspire children, parents, and educators while paying homage to one of the most exciting and significant times in American history.
Review: The big idea of this book is to celebrate and showcase the culture and thoughts of children who grew up in the Harlem Renaissance era. In my opinion, the book was filled with many amazing poems. I liked how the book included many poems that children could relate to or be interested in. Although the book was filled with poems of the Harlem Renaissance, it choose poems from relatable topics such as how children want to grow up to be like someone and the first day of kindergarten. I believe this book does a good job of showcasing both poetry and the Harlem Renaissance to readers.
