#BookSale “Dear Black Girl: Letters From Your Sisters on Stepping Into Your Power” by Tamara Winfrey Harris

cover

~~~

Dear Black Girl is the empowering, affirming love letter our girls need in order to thrive in a world that does not always protect, nurture, or celebrate us. This collection of Black women’s voices… is a must-read, not only for Black girls, but for everyone who cares about Black girls, and for Black women whose inner-Black girl could use some healing.” –Tarana Burke, Founder of the ‘Me Too’ Movement

“Dear Dope Black Girl, You don’t know me, but I know you. I know you because I am you! We are magic, light, and stars in the universe.” So begins a letter that Tamara Winfrey Harris received as part of her Letters to Black Girls project, where she asked black women to write honest, open, and inspiring letters of support to young black girls aged thirteen to twenty-one. Her call went viral, resulting in a hundred personal letters from black women around the globe that cover topics such as identity, self-love, parents, violence, grief, mental health, sex, and sexuality.

In Dear Black Girl, Winfrey Harris organizes a selection of these letters, providing “a balm for the wounds of anti-black-girlness” and modeling how black women can nurture future generations. Each chapter ends with a prompt encouraging girls to write a letter to themselves, teaching the art of self-love and self-nurturing. Winfrey Harris’s The Sisters Are Alright explores how black women must often fight and stumble their way into alrightness after adulthood. Dear Black Girl continues this work by delivering pro-black, feminist, LGBTQ+ positive, and body positive messages for black women-to-be—and for the girl who still lives inside every black woman who still needs reminding sometimes that she is alright.

“Yes Day!” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Cover

Yes Day!

by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Tom Lichtenheld (Illustrator)

Genre: Children/Self-Esteem & Self-Respect/Emotions & Feelings

1.99 at time of posting!

From the beloved New York Times bestselling author of I Wish You More, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, a funny look at the one day of the year that can compete with Christmas for children’s affection: YES DAY!

No matter how silly the request, there is one day a year when kids always receive a positive response: Can I have pizza for breakfast? YES! Can we have a food fight? YES! Can I stay up really late? YES!

Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s simple text coupled with Tom Lichtenheld’s delightful illustrations will send kids on a journey into their wildest wishes. With humor and appreciation for life’s little pleasures, Yes Day! captures the excitement of being a kid.

Jennifer Garner uses Yes Day! as inspiration for an annual magical day of all things YES with her children. She was a little worn out after 24 hours of pure YES in 2017, but she still praised Yes Day! as “a fantastic children’s book.”

Conceived in magic. Born into deception. Roselle Katipo is no ordinary child.

The daughter of the Shadow Witch is missing and she has a powerful amulet in her possession. She continues to mature at an unnatural pace, but becomes more animal than human as she hides among the massive Sky Shadows in their mountain roosts.

Several leagues to the north, Flynn Hawthorn fights to restore her reputation and reunite her family. If she hopes for any chance at redemption she must forsake everything beyond the Mist.

Flynn, the child of prophecy, struggles toward the Light and yearns to heal her land.

The Daughter of Shadow, Roselle, surges toward darkness as she obsesses over unlocking the secrets of her own twisted magic.

Will Roselle join her mother in the battle to destroy the Light, or will Flynn have to fight a war on two fronts?

Daughter of Shadow is the seventh book in the best-selling young adult fantasy series The Chronicles of Hawthorn. If you like historical fantasy, magical adventure, deadly enemies, and unbreakable friendships that readers have called, “truly a wonderful read for all ages,” then you’ll love Rue’s spell-casting spectacular.
