Carol Boston Weatherford observes the urban scene through the eyes of a child in Sidewalk Chalk: Poems of the City, illus. by Dimitrea Tokunbo, a collection of 20 original works. On the street where ""dreams take root/ in concrete"" readers watch ""As little girls jump double Dutch,/ [and] beaded braids swirl and click."" Tokunbo's realistic illustrations in thick colorful outlines depict all the landmarks that define a neighborhood, from the Laundromat to the barbershop to the stained glass windows of the church and its gospel choirs on Sunday.
