The Sweet and Sour Animal Book by Langston Hughes, students from the Harlem School of the Arts

In 26 never-before-published short and wonderfully clever poems, Langston Hughes takes children through both the alphabet and the animal world. From Ape to Zebra—with bees, camels, fish, and even a unicorn in between—he paints a picture of each animal with just a few simple, but telling, words.
