"The City Spreads Its Wings": The Urban Experience in Poetry for Children.
Russell, David L.
Children's Literature in Education, v29 n1 p31-42 Mar 1998
Notes a dearth of quality poetry for young readers. Looks at the work of three poets for young people who have turned to the urban experience for inspiration--Richard Margolis, Paul Janeczko, and Gary Soto. Suggests that the city is a "grand and colorful chorus of humanity with voices mingling sorrow and joy." (RS)
