About This Book
This vibrantly illustrated picture book teaches the importance of storytelling for the purpose of preserving a family's history and strengthening the bond between parent and child.
As Mama tucks her young daughter into bed each night, the little African-American girl recalls stories she learned about her mother's childhood as told to her by her Mama. Mama happily reflects on her life, and the young girl delights in sharing the adventures her mother had with family and friends.
The story's simple text relates the differences and similarities in the lives of two generations of women in an African-American family.
