Description
Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander brings you How to Read a Book, a poetic journey about the experience of reading. Find a tree-a black tupelo or dawn redwood will do-and plant yourself. (It's okay if you prefer a stoop, like Langston Hughes.) With these words, an adventure begins. Kwame Alexander's evocative poetry takes listeners on a sensory journey between the pages of a book.
