A NEST FULL OF STARS : POEMS
New York : Greenwillow Books,
IL 3-6, RL 4.4
Berry was raised in Jamaica where he heard the lyrical Caribbean Creole
speech. The teachers in school forbid the children from using the
dialect or "Bad Talk." In this collection of poems, Berry has tried
to capture the sounds of Jamaica and the experience of growing up.
Here is a collection about friendship and family and birthdays and sisters.
So "Make playtime full time!" and "Make chocolate cake free!" Enjoy
the experience of A Nest Full of Stars.
