Reviews

"In the hills of Port-au-Prince," little Fallon has a lot on her mind as she accompanies her mother into the bustling market, but more than anything, she wants to carry a panye on her head...Fallon is as easy to root for as Haiti is lovely to gaze upon in this graceful book.
--Kirkus Reviews

Fallon couldn't be more excited about accompanying Manman to the market. She not only gets to wrap her hair in a mouchwa in imitation of her mother but also gets to carry the panye...While the text honors the work of women and girls who keep communities strong and traditions meaningful, Palacios' cheerful illustrations are as vibrant and lush as the island itself, a perfect complement to Charles' tribute to the women of Haiti.
