2 reviews for My Afrikah Hair

  1. D. Donovan

    …Delightfully original, evocatively thought-provoking, and supportive of family, community relationships, and Christian sentiments alike, My Afrikah Hair is a unique and winning formula for not just self-acceptance but celebrating culture and appearance. It’s very highly recommended as a standout that should become both an award-winner and a foundation selection for any elementary-level picture book collections looking for a powerful multicultural read, Christian readers, and parents who want to teach a better understanding of ethnic roots and paths to empowerment. ~ D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

  2. Kirkus

    …These illustrated verses for all ages celebrate the hair of people with African heritage—its styles, its textures, its versatility, and its beauty…A joyful and heartfelt book of poems. ~ Kirkus Review
