My daughter brought this book home from school one night and I just fell in love with it. Not only are there alot of great BIG words in the stroy, but the illustrations are just as GRAND! 'no pun intended' I sent the book back the next day with a note to her teacher thanking her for sharing such a book. I love to see/read stories of BIG BEAUTIFUL BLACK children. I recommend this book to all families! It definetly made Santa's wish list this year.
