" Wow! This was a great jumping off point for a unit on Hip Hop for my 6th graders. It makes poetry cool and relevant to them. Best part--analyzing a Tupac poem with heart and accuracy. " said.

" Delightful book made even better by the included audio CD. Great variety of artists included, great way of sharing cultural history and poetry.Featured on No Extra Words podcast episode 109. " said.

" its gives a very sense of different poem that in the book with very detailed color and understanding the words especially for kids age very easy to read and take a sense of it. very recommend it for children they will like it " said.

" The poems are about a variety of subjects, many of which have a powerful and meaningful message. The poems are written by a very diverse group of people. I feel the reader will be encouraged to put their words into poetry and beats after being inspired by these poems. " said.

"This book brings poetry to life, blurring the line between poetry and rap music in an addicting way. I purchased this book with the cd that has recordings of many of the poems being read by the poet, some with music or to a beat. The poems range in complexity- all of them are appropriate for middle school but some may be a struggle for elementary students. Beautiful, bright illustrations make it appealing from the cover on through the book. Definitely consider adding this book to your collection! My middle school students really enjoyed it. We used it in an informal poetry walk and then as part of a poetry jam and I plan to use it again next year." said.

" The best of this poetry, imho, is Hip Hop; but most of it isn't, and a lot of it isn't particularly beat driven. The performances on the accompanying CD also vary greatly in their resemblance to HipHop.I have nothing against the poetry here, some of it is quite good. But kids know what is and isn't hip hop. Hip Hop deserves respect in its own right and shouldn't be used as a shill to get kids to read poetry. " said.
