Welcome to the Cypher

by Khodi Dill (Author) Awuradwoa Afful (Illustrator)

Welcome to the Cypher
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

Words burn bright in this joyful celebration of rap, creativity, and self-expression.

"Welcome to the cypher! Now huddle up nice and snug. You feel that circle around you? Well, that's a hip hop hug!"

Starting with beatboxes and fingersnaps, an exuberant narrator introduces kids in his community to the powerful possibilities of rap, from turning "a simple phrase/into imagery that soars" to proclaiming, "this is a voice that represents me!" As Khodi Dill's rhymes heat up, the diverse crew of kids--illustrated in Awuradwoa Afful's bold, energetic style--gain self-confidence and a sense of freedom in this wonderful picture book debut that is perfect for reading aloud.
