To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done….
Langston Hughes's inspiring and timeless message of pride, joy, and the dream of a better life is brilliantly and beautifully interpreted in Daniel Miyares's gorgeous artwork.
Follow one African-American boy through the course of his day as the harsh reality of segregation and racial prejudice comes into vivid focus. But the boy dreams of a different lifeone full of freedom, hope, and wild possibility, where he can fling his arms wide in the face of the sun.
Hughes's powerful vision, brought joyously to life by Daniel Miyares, is as relevantand necessarytoday as when it was first written.
Daniel Miyares is the author and illustrator of Float, an ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book of the Year, which The Boston Globe called, "a perfect wordless book;" Pardon Me!; and Bring Me a Rock! He also illustrated Surf's Up by Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander. He lives in Kansas City, MO, with his wife and their two children.

"With luminous washes of watercolor and the lyrical language of Hughess 1924 poem as his text, Miyares (That Neighbor Kid) presents a resonant vision of an African-American boy who imagines a more just world." Publishers Weekly, starred review
