A powerful poetry picture book from a celebrated contemporary poet and illustrator about the wonder and possibility contained in a single word: let
Suppose there was a book full only of the word, let . . .
Adapted from a poem called “Book of Genesis” by the celebrated poet Kei Miller and beautifully imagined and illustrated by Diana Ejaita, this provocative and hopeful picture book is an ode to the power of words and of books—of seeing oneself and being seen—and to a world of wonder and possibility.
