About this deal

waiting to read to my daughters, and thankful to have a stack of picture books that celebrate diversity.

It means a lot for an African American little girl to know she is different, but still feel good about herself.Then on Instagram I spotted a pic and comment from Naturally Cimone, so I thought I’d give it a try. Keyana tells her own stories about the reasons why she loves her hair, and through her stories we are transported into a world of dreams, belonging, and becoming!

The creators of Big Boy place this story of a resourceful and thoughtful boy in the 1960s Tanzania of Mollel's childhood. This is seen when her cornrows blend with the rows of crops in a field or her afro blends with an image of the earth in space. Looking at it now I do see that nothing is connecting that bobbin to the wheel but I’ll still accept it. She would sit and think about her hair and compare it to yarn, garden rows, or a planet out in space. About the Author Natasha Anastasia Tarpley started writing when she was seven years old, and from that young age she understood that stories could change the world.

Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). A thoughtful folktale from Madagascar and spare, painterly watercolors affectingly cohere in this compassionate book about a boy's encounter with death.

This book was excellent at showing the different expressions and emotions that African American girls have in real life when it comes to their hair.

In Tarpley's gracefully told story, a young African American heroine celebrates her lovely head of hair as part of her heritage. It touches on how she and her mom bond over the maintenance of her hair (even though it can hurt when her mom brushes it) and how she can wear it in a variety of styles. This sweet story is about a Back girl’s struggles with feeling confident and comfortable with her hair. Keyana doesn’t feel lucky to have such a head of hair–until Mama reminds her of all the lovely ways her wonderful hair can be fixed.
