My kids really enjoyed this book. They loved seeing other children that look like them. The book instills a sense of pride in the beauty of all African-American children. I love the metaphors used to describe all of the differences in skin color, hair texture, and eye color:
“My hair is the soft puffs in a cotton ball”
“My eyes are”…”the shimmering glow of ebony in an onyx”
This is a wonderful book and the photographs are very vibrant and beautiful! We loved seeing all of the shades of black!!! Read more >>
