TEXT Ì Magnificent Homespun Brown Õ Samara Cole Doyon

E America we hear you singing With vivid illustrations by Kaylani Juanita Samara Cole Doyon This book is an encouraging and empowering love letter to many different shades of brown found on many different shades of people The rich poetic text is powerful and I can see parents and teachers wanting a copy of this book on their shelves to impart a positive message to the kids in their lives I don't know that it's a book I necessarily see kids reaching for themselves but with the right adult to share it I think it's an inspiring book

BOOK Magnificent Homespun Brown

Magnificent Homespun Brown Sings a carol for the plenitude that surrounds us and the self each of us is meant to inhabi First thing The illustrations in this picture book are transcendent Kaylani Juanita is certainly establishing herself as a children's illustrator to know While I really liked her artwork for last year's When Aidan Became a Brother I love what she's done here The warm autumnal color palette exudes coziness while the many laughing beaming faces she lovingly renders are rosy and glowing with a sense of belonging and familiarity Best of all disabled folks a grownup wears a hearing aid a child uses a wheelchair and has a service dog are fully realized members of the family whose disabilities are as integral to their characterization as their voluminous hairdos and serene grins Just beautifulThe words are poetic lovely to read slowly and with attention The text is suited to making this a keepsake book a one on one read aloud rather than a story time selection but it like the winning pictures is really special
