About Little Black Pears for Little Black Girls:
From the time our little girls come into the world, they are bombarded with images and messages that don’t always affirm who they are as individuals and future leaders. As moms and caring adults, we must work a bit harder to ensure that our little Black girls grow up to be strong and confident women who understand their true power, beauty, intellect and value to the world.
Little Black Pearls for Little Black Girls is a book for all ages! This book is filled with beautiful pearls of wisdom to inspire pride and confidence in the reader. If your little one could use a boost of confidence or a closer connection with you, then this is a must-read! This book is great for mothers and daughters, mentors and mentees, aunts and nieces, grandmothers and granddaughters or just friends. Each chapter includes an activity that promotes conversation, confidence and a deeper connection to one another.
