(4) PS Illustrated by Frank Morrison. An African American mother and daughter stroll through their neighborhood, and the young girl feels rhythm all around her with all her senses. The patterned, onomatopoetic text attempts to create a rhythm of its own, but it can't match the energy and movement captured in the lively oil paintings, which pulse with the girl's contagious enthusiasm.
