Books Info:

Mural on Second Avenue and Other City Poems free pdf Brought to life through Roma Karas's simple, vibrant illustrations, this collection of poetry by Lilian Moore offers a loving tribute to small moments in the big city, and to the children who live there. Lilian Moore had a lifetime of experience as an author of books for young readers -- and a particular expertise for observing and celebrating life from a child's point of view. In this collection, seventeen poems speak to the joys and everyday wonders of city living, including the hush of a snowy morning, the grandeur of skyscrapers and bridges, the phantom faces reflected in store windows, and the transforming effects of a neighborhood mural painted "on the blank / unwindowed wall" by someone "dreaming / to the slap of a / wet brush."
