Baby Young, Gifted, and Black

With a Mirror!

This board book celebrates Black excellence as it makes Black icons, past and present, accessible to babies and toddlers. Through its bold colors and minimalist illustrations utilizing sharp lines and geometric shapes, children are invited to consider their talents and relate to well-known figures like Misty Copeland and W.E.B. DuBois. A mirror at the end brings home the message to follow your dreams and refuse to accept the limitations that others may put on your potential.
