And so it’s really important that we have positive representation in books … so when you, as a young black girl, pick up a book and you see that mirror reflected back to you as a young, black, positive character, it’s affirming of you and your identity. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Even now, after the spike of black authors in 2020 post-George Floyd and the campaigns to publish more black authors, that figure now has dropped by 23%, and back in 2018, only 1% of main characters in children’s fiction were from Bipoc (black, indigenous and people of colour) backgrounds, which is now only 7%.

Will her mum be able to give Tia the same hairstyle as her twin best friend Aaoki for 'picture day'? I’ve had a lot of comments on social media and also little girls all around the world have been showing pictures of my book saying that they love it and feel empowered to wear their afro hair to school, so that makes me really happy,” she added.Daniella Blechner, 42, from West Norwood, south London, the founder of Conscious Dreams Publishing, said she initially helped aspiring authors as a “labour of love” by “connecting them to editors, typesetters and illustrators and mentoring them through the process of publishing”, all while working full-time as a teacher. Now, if day by day, week after week and year after year what you’re doing is picking up books and seeing characters that don’t look like you, that will consciously or unconsciously affect your sense of wellbeing, your sense of identity and sense of what you believe you can aspire to achieve.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Beautiful story of besties Tia and Aoki and how they surmounted challenges the class was facing ahead of picture day. Speaking during Black History Month, which runs in October in the UK, Tiana told the PA news agency: “I wanted to show that people who have my type of hair have challenges and sometimes find it hard to love their hair texture plus all the struggle of making it look beautiful. I enjoyed flipping though the book and my two beautiful daughters virtually saw themselves in the pages of this book.

It's about empowering young Afro hair babies to see the magic in their beautiful Fro's but not ignoring that their friends of other races are equally as beautiful and amazing. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.
