House That Crack Built (92 Edition)by Clark Taylor
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
With a beat reminiscent of hip-hop or rap music, a well-known nursery rhyme is brilliantly transformed into a powerful poem about the tragic problem of illegal drugs and its victims. The rhythmic text, which is realistic but not moralizing, will appeal to teenagers and adults. It is also accessible for even very young children, making this a valuable resource for parents, teachers, librarians, caregivers, and everyone who is looking for a way to broach this difficult subject. Full color.
Cumulative verses describe the creation, distribution, and destructive effects of crack cocaine.
