"Fans of Antiracist Baby (2000) by Ibram X. Kendi, illustrated by Ashley Lukashevsky, and Woke Baby (2018) by Mahogany L. Browne, illustrated by Theodore Taylor III, will enjoy this motivating book." (Kirkus Reviews)
An inspirational picture book for BIPOC children about the power of big dreams—for their future selves, their communities, and the larger world.
Nyasha Williams’s latest picture book is a moving and powerful invitation to BIPOC children to fully explore their dreams for the future. Dreams provide purpose and meaning—they are ideas born of love. They take time to sprout and can sometimes be clouded by the doubts of others, BUT with patience and discipline, we can rely on our visions for a better world by following our dreams. Interspersed with explanations of what dreams are and why they are important, are affirmations that offer precise ideas for ways our dreams can effect change. Encouraging readers to reach for the stars and embrace others for what they are or wish to be, Keep Dreaming, Black Child reminds children of the power of hope.
