Some people have dresses for every occasion but Afiya needs only one. Her dress records the memories of her childhood, from roses in bloom to pigeons in flight, from tigers at the zoo to October leaves falling.
A joyful celebration of a young girl's childhood, written by the late Coretta Scott King Book Award-winning Jamaican poet James Berry.

Why it's on The Cornrow?
We adore books here at The Cornrow HQ, for reading, for sharing and for shelfie styling! We have given a lot of thought into curating the edit of books on our site. They are diverse (of course!) but also wonderfully written, fun or extremely educational (if not all four!)
