Praise for Little Black Girl ★ "This poetic story is a love letter to every little Black girl who has ever felt left out from the world around her. Throughout the book, readers are reminded of just how unique and important they are, even if they are not always able to recognize that truth themselves. . . Digitally rendered illustrations are filled with intricate color and shading, and readers will be inspired to discuss the images as the story progresses. VERDICT This uplifting, approachable book offers unlimited encouragement to children of all ages to believe in themselves and relentlessly chase their beautiful dreams." --School Library Journal, starred review "Inspirational. . . [with] a dreamlike quality to the art . . . A stirring story about a Black girl learning to celebrate her own uniqueness." --Kirkus
