From the Publisher:
Who Am I? is a fun reading experience for the child with elementary reading skills and comprehension or as a shared activity between parent and child to provide a foundation in reading skills, adeptness is logical thought processes, and the art of poetry. Poetry is a successful reading strategy of rhyme and rhythm that keeps the child engaged and curious. This book allows the child to indulge in the world of discovery with a final resolve that the answers are in the reading. Each poem directs the child to another poem that gives an overall story of a character. The intrigue is in the fact that each poem is only a clue about who the character may be. It is only when they get to the last poem that the character they have been reading about is revealed. It has been proven that babies can learn to read before speaking fluently, and here's an aid to that challenge.

She is a graduate of Yale University and New York University's Graduate School of Film and Television, and is the daughter of poet Le Roi Jones (Amiri Baraka) and his wife, Hettie.
