There Is a Flower at the Tip of My Nose Smelling Me

Author: Alice Walker

Quote: There is a pen nestled in my hand writing me.

Why you should read this book: Alice Walker's fourth children's book, illustrated by Stefano Vitale, is a bright, rainbow-hued ode to the universe, as perceived through the eyes of an active and enthralled observer. The "me" of the poem interacts with her environment, evincing joy as she experiences the world with all her senses. A really beautiful book.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't want to be happy, and you don't want your kids to be happy either.
