Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A young African American boy develops a sense of cultural identity and self-esteem in this story. After questioning his appearance and wishing he could be different, Jordan finally accepts his hair texture and skin color. Ed and Sonya Spruill highlight an important message; the most important qualities of a person are inside, not outside. With colorful illustrations, Stephen Mercer Peringer brings this boy to life with charming details. 2005, Judson Press, Ages 3 to 6.
—Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

    GREAT BOOK

    Very good book. My son's name is actually Jordan and we were looking for a book that related to differences in culture and appearance from his friends at school. This book is excellent for children to read and understand. Thanks to the authors for writing a story that truly was a blessing for my Jordan.
