A Poem for Peter | Little Lit Book Series

One of the many beautiful books published in 2016, shared by @writesinla.

A perfect tribute—filled with heart, poetry, sophistication, and imagination, just like Ezra Jack Keats's The Snowy Day. This is the powerful story of how the artist came to be an artist and how Peter came to be a character, both of whom have had profound effects on children's literature and, most importantly, on children. "Brown-sugar boy in a blanket of white. Bright as the day you came onto the page. From the hand of a man who saw you for you."

A Poem for Peter was written by Andrea Davis Pinkney, illustrated by Lou Fancher and Steve Johnson, and published by Viking Books.
