Rap is an art form and a language all its own. Combining rhyme with a beat, read out loud, it is a powerful method of communication that kids relate to in increasing numbers. Rap can also be used to convey a positive message about such things as self-esteem, careers, friendship, love, relationships, school, money, drugs, sex, and many other concerns that kids have growing up in a sometimes confusing and dangerous world. Here in book form are tested, uplifting, positive raps that adults can use to teach their children, and kids can use to learn in writing their own.
