She is sharing some of her favorite poems that she had to repeat every day in her little village. This book presents the flavor and spiciness of words as they can be sung or repeated at home or at school. She is helping young people to remember their own cultural backgrounds and to celebrate their own culture as they live in a plural society in the United States of America. New York is a melting pot of different cultures, and we can celebrate our own cultures as we live from day to day by learning poems from the past and the present.
