“The rhythmic verses and rich illustrations bring to life simple, yet nuanced lessons about diversity. equality, and inclusion that will appeal to kids, parents, and educators everywhere.” -Farihah Fahmy, Global Head for Girls Education (Teach For All)

“Afiya’s story takes us back to our childhood. The story is an emotional reminder of the innocence of children, and their ability to see innate goodness in each other. Racism and biases develop in all of us, and this book is a great way to start conversations about diversity and racism with your children. It is also a necessary reminder for all of us grown-ups, that it is never ok to be mean to someone because they are different” – Deborah Henry, Founder of Fugee Org. & Humans Rights Advocate
