    1. Quite wonderful. The illustrations are not a perfect fit to my taste, and 16 poems is not enough, but I do think this has a place in every school. My favorite poem is Jane Medina's "Me x 2" about a girl who is bilingual, and the picture reflects her pride in being able to "cry time two try times two." I'd want to discuss Janet S. Wong's "Living Above Good Fortune" as the illustrator shows a happy child, but I read the poem as sarcastically expressing frustration. (You can see this poem in anothe [...]

    2. I recently read Amazing Faces by: Lee Bennett Hopkins! This book is a pretty good book about different kids culture! This book is a good, different, and learning about others book because it is enjoyable, but also you learn about other people, how their culture works, and how they do different home things (like eating, learning, writing, reading, etc) I like the idea of a poem book, but it could be a book where each chapter was about different kids ,their culture, and at home doing things! I thi [...]

    3. For the most part I liked the poems in this collection. I do not like the illustrations. This type of photograph quality watercolor with lots of detail always looks to me as if the lighting is too bright. It can distort facial features which I think makes it a bit creepy. I like the multicultural aspect of the poetry particularly Me x 2 done in both English and Spanish, which cleverly illustrates the point. There are a couple of poems that I felt didn’t really fit into the overall mix: A Young [...]

And only a few people outside of its inhabitants can actually lay eyes on this second world. But now I was seeing it!It was mid-morning, the fog had just cleared leaving San Francisco bright and brisk, and I was walking al [...]

Each poem has something about the culture in a non-stereotypical way. The poems show the cultures in a positive light. For example, lang [...]

    9. This book is a great collection of poems that really reflect diversity and America. Diversity in race as well as the range of emotions in human experience, both are on display in this collection. The collection moves gracefully from one poem to the next, each fitting next to the other to make a cohesive whole. This is helped by Soentpiet’s art which celebrates emotions, humanity and community in the faces he depicts.Hopkins has created a collection that really meshes well. Each poem and poet h [...]

The 16 poems help show you see the diversity we have in this world and that is important to show to your children when teaching so your students get a better idea of others in this world. You want your students to understand one another and know that no one is the same so we must be respectful for what makes other people happy.

    18. I just finished "Amazing Faces", and I liked it. It is a book told through poetry. To me the theme of the story is that it is okay to be different. Everyone is different. I thought the illustrations where amazing. I was able to figure out the idea of the story and the theme early on. It doesn't matter if you are from a different country or you have a different color of skin. It just matter that you are you.

    22. This is a great anthology of poems that brings together people from all around us! The collection of poems features different people and their emotions. Many of the poems are told by children and relate to real school issues liking finding a friend in a new school. The author, Lee Bennett Hopkins, put together this book of poems to show how we are all connected by our emotions. I would recommend for grades 3-5.

    23. This collection of sixteen poems portray the many kinds of people that make up our nation. Diversity in race, age, gender, and various emotions are present. The book if full of expressive illustrations that help bring each poem to life. Each reader will be able to relate to some of the poems on a personal level because they are about life. I especially enjoyed A Young Soldier by Prince Redcloud. This collection of poems will help readers celebrate what America is all about.

    24. I decided to include this collection of poems in my social justice text set because emphasizes the importance of diversity. By promoting diversity (specifically through multiculturalism in this collection) the students can be encouraged to respect others who are different from them. It is important to emphasize that you should respect people not only for the interests that you both may share, but for their differences as well.

    25. Forgot to mark this one even though I read it a while back. Beautifully done. Looking through it again just about made me cry--A Young Soldier. One brother is already deployed and the second one left just this morning for basic training. :[Trying to think through a lesson using this and the "Seek first to understand, then to be understood" habit (our school will be a "Lighthouse" campus next year) as there are so many different people represented in the book.

    27. Hopkins has compiled a stellar collection of poetry celebrating the many different faces of America. Many of the poets are well-known (Yolen, Hughes, Mora, Grimes), but I must admit it's Soentpiet's illustrations that are the real star of the book. Beautifully realistic, he captures the nuances in age, color, and emotion in a way that jumps off the page.
