To one young narrator, it's the simple things that mean the most, like sharing laughter with a friend, taking family rides in the country, and kissing her mama's arm.
When this poem was first published in 1978 in Honey, I Love and Other Love Poems, Eloise Greenfield reminded us that love can be found just about anywhere. Now, twenty-five years later, she and celebrated children's book artist Jan Spivey Gilchrist present a stunning, newly illustrated anniversary edition that invites readers to celebrate the simple joys of loving and living.
After first appearing in Honey, I Love and Other Poems (1978), now, Eloise Greenfield's Honey, I Love, in which an African-American child joyfully recounts the things that make her life special, appears as a stand-alone poem in a 25th-anniversary picture book edition, illus. by Jan Spivey Gilchrist.
