The President Looks Like Me and Other Poems is a collection of poetry for middle readers that celebrates diversity via a myriad of themes: childhood, friendship, identity, spirituality, social justice and hip hop. Distinctly urban in settings and flavor, Tony Medina's poems realistically capture the impact of what it means to be young in a complex world. The poems are multicultural in scope and wide-ranging in style and they resound prominently with children of color who can say, "the president looks like me." Includes an author's note, tips for teachers and poetry prompts at the end of the collection. Special bonus is a reading of the signature poem by the author.
