Join Hands
Pat Mora and George Ancona

From singing canciones to planning a hoopla day, Join Hands! joyfully celebrates the many ways that children build communities with friends of all ages. Award-winning author Pat Mora weaves the repeating lines of a pantoum, a Malaysian poetic form with a specific pattern of repetition, while George Ancona's lively photos capture the ways that kids have fun with others. Join Hands! is not only a wonderful way to celebrate diversity and play, but also a great tool to teach poetry that relates to kids' lives.
