Visiting Langston

By Willie Perdomo

A wonderful picture book introduction to a legendary American writer.

"Today I'm going to wear
My favorite pink blouse
I'm going with my daddy
To visit Langston's house."

It's a special day when a little girl and her father go to visit the house where the great poet Langston Hughes lived-especially when the little girl is a poet herself!

This rhythmic tale is a wonderful introduction to the work and world of Langston Hughes, who was a central figure of the Harlem Renaissance and an American cultural hero.
