A long overdue book that lyrically celebrates and teaches positive associations with two of the most important colors on Earth, black and brown.
Have you ever paused to savor the power and beauty of brown and black? Brown is strong as a tree and sweet as honey in tea; black is the hopeful promise of a seed and the grace of a bird in flight… and the quiet space where dreams begin.
In this groundbreaking picture book, poetic text and lush imagery celebrates two essential colors that capture all the richness and depth life, love, and the natural world have to offer.
- “The verses are beautifully written…. [the] illustrations [are] soft, rich, and warm, evoking feelings of safety and calm…. Celebrates the everyday joy of Black children and their families.”—Kirkus
- “The book makes for a beautiful read-aloud…. File this under Black joy, childhood, autumn reveries, or pair with other celebrations of Black strength and beauty, such as Tami Charles’s All Because You Matter and Useni Eugene Perkins’s Hey Black Child.”—School Library Journal
