The Dream Keeper: And Other Poems
First published in 1932, The Dream Keeper is Langston Hughes's only collection of poems for children. It includes some of Hughes's best-known, best-loved and most powerful works, poems filled with spiritual energy.
From the front Cover Illus. in black-and-white. This classic collection of poetry is available in a handsome new gift edition that includes seven additional poems written after The Dream Keeper was first published. In a larger format, featuring Brian Pinkney's scratchboard art on every spread, Hughes's inspirational message to young people is as relevant today as it was in 1932.
