Popo and Fifina: Children of Haiti
Arna Bontemps (au); Langston Hughes (au); Arnold Rampersad (in)
This early African-American classic is a rare gem of multicultural children’s literature. Popo and his sister Fifina leave their home in the hills of Haiti to move with their family to a town by the sea. The new few months are full of excitement -- the children adjust to their new home, fly the wondrous kite their father makes, take a trip to the lighthouse at the end of the island, and even endure a tropical storm. Through the artistry of Hughes and Bontemps, we feel the majestic beauty of tropical Haiti and delight in meeting two poor but very happy children growing up in a close-knit, simple, hard-working family. When this book was first published in 1932, it was greeted by universal critical acclaim and has remained a favorite among children, parents, and teachers. Illus.
