"There are so many things I am and can be... There's a whole world waiting for me."
Introduce your baby to Black excellence with this lyrical board-book edition of Young, Gifted, and Black. Includes a mirror at the back so young dreamers can see themselves next to their heroes.
Meet icons of color from past and present in this baby board book celebration of inspirational achievement. A collection of positive, yet simple, affirmations to encourage the next generation. Highlighting the talent of Black leaders and changemakers from around the world, young dreamers will develop confidence, self-assurance, and self-belief.
Created in the spirit of Nina Simone’s song “To Be Young, Gifted, and Black,” meet figureheads, leaders, and pioneers such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, as well as cultural trailblazers like Zadie Smith and athletes like Serena Williams. Jamia Wilson has carefully curated this range of Black icons and the book is stylishly brought together by Andrea Pippins’ colorful and celebratory illustrations.
All children deserve to see themselves represented positively in the books they read.
