KIRKUS REVIEW

What distinguishes this particular volume (subtitled Poems and Pictures About Growing Up), by a skilled and prolific poet-anthologist, is the crisply reproduced color photos linking the 16 poems--most of them from contemporary authors and already familiar--to the world that today's kids know:, urban, multicultural, and not always privileged. Dunn's photos, creatively sized and arranged on every spread, are splendid: he is as sensitive to his subjects' subtler feelings as to his own artful compositions, and even some obviously posed storytelling sequences have a fine spontaneity. An attractive, up-to-the-minute setting for some proven favorites.
