PreS-Gr 2–In an ode to mothers and daughters of all ages, Duncan creates a narrative spun with pure love. The lyrical text takes readers through the relationship between mother and daughter, from birth through adulthood, with the encouragement of a strong relationship. Tidbits about strong Black females are woven in as well to contribute to the daughter’s strength as a woman. Freeman’s illustrations are feminine and whimsical, while showcasing the power of the female relationship.
VERDICT Shelve this with family collections, books about strong women, or for a unit on intergenerational bonds.
