TOGETHER by George Ella Lyon


Email this review


A joyful poem celebrating friendship--in three similarly patterned verses, each ending with the same last line (""I'll drive the truck if you'll fight the fire./I'll plunk the keys if you'll be the choir./I'll find the ball if you'll call the team./Let's put our heads together and dream the same dream"")--and illustrated with ebulliently imaginative scenes of two girls, one black and one white, gleefully cooperating to build a house or a giant-sized sundae; to extinguish a dragon's fire or to drive the sun's chariot. As full of love, hope, and the joy of creation as a beautiful spring day.
