Children's LiteratureA 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.

With colorful illustrations, Stephen Mercer Peringer brings this boy to life with charming details. 2005, Judson Press, Ages 3 to 6.
