“Ain’t I a woman”? It’s tools like these that help mold our daughters into self-loving, independent, beautiful women of today, and tomorrow.
This book just came in and before wrapping and putting it under the tree I gave it a quick "skim" and I can't wait to read along and finish with my daughter.
I was feeling #depressed so I went out and bought three copies of #LittleLeaders by @vashtiharrison and donated them to local elementary school libraries. Cost the same as 3 therapy copays & made me feel just as good, but I hope & expect the rewards will be longer-lasting. #happyholidays y’all.
Five days ago, this highly-anticipated book written and illustrated by @vashtiharrison was released. I have to be honest, it blew me away.
I have used countless children’s books about African Americans for story times and read-alouds, but this one is on another level. Each page celebrates a bold woman in Black history; women in sports, the arts, activism, science, and technology. But each little vignette is so full of life, I now know so much about each woman just from one beautiful page.
For example: I have loved Octavia Butler since reading Kindred, but I never knew she had dyslexia. I never knew that a woman named Alma Woodsey Thomas, at 80 years old, had the first-ever solo exhibition of an African American woman at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Those are just two.
