Step in & Create!
Welcome to the Cypher, by Khodi Dill, and illustrated by Awuradwoa Afful, is a layered story of the power of a Hip Hop MC and also the agency and power young people have when creating and using their voice.
Laid down in rhyme, Khodi invites the reader to free themselves from the fear of writing and rhyming to expressing their ideas with their heart, mind, and spirit so the world can hear it (see how I threw in that rhyme).
April is Poetry Month. This would be a perfect selection to introduce poetry, writing and rhyming and being yourself, fearlessly.
