Sometimes in life things just don’t go our way. We end up feeling down and like we just can’t get it right. Well, that’s when it’s time to pick up a book and get inspired to be the best you that you can be.
With our new move came new jobs, new schools, new friends, and new feats. My five-year-old was feeling a little slum about things and it was so much “NEW” to her that she felt that she just couldn’t do it all.
As a young black girl, I struggled with loving myself. I hated my color, my hair, and all the stigmas that came along with being a young black little girl. It took me a long time to love being black and I knew that I didn’t want that for my four daughters. I didn’t find out about the self-love books for African-American children until well after my second child, but it’s okay cause I taught my girls how beautiful their black was. Now that I know they have these books I read them to my youngest and even to my oldest and self to help us all understand that we are just as beautiful and the greatness of our black.
Hey Guys, I have a review for you. I was sent 1000 Extreme and Extraordinary Dinosaur Facts by Discovery Kids, published by Parragon Books, a couple of months ago to review as part of a Book of the Month. (While I’m compensated for this, all opinions and activities for this book are my own.)
Let’s get into it. This book was a winner when I first opened it because it was dinosaurs, my girls are major dino heads. We cracked it open right away and they started to wow at the images and infographics. This book has some beautiful images, and the facts that are inserted in the images stand out but doesn’t take away from the pictures.
