Product description

Review

“Joy’s words and Holmes’s art are a perfect pairing where the verse is as vivid as the paints and collage. Children (and parents) of all colors will be rereading this one plenty.” ―Washington Post, "Best Books of 2020"

“Both a beautiful celebration of black culture and an excellent first black history book for young children.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A treasure trove of positivity, strength, and pride for anyone seeking to uplift and educate young people.” ―Horn Book, starred review

“A beautifully told and illustrated celebration of African American people and ethnology, Black Is a Rainbow Color thoughtfully explores what the Black experience means to a child . . . A must-have for children's collections.” ―Booklist, starred review

“With Black Is a Rainbow Color, debut author Angela Joy pens a loving tribute to all the ways black is beautiful. Caldecott Honor and Coretta Scott King Award-winner Ekua Holmes's brilliant collage illustrations elevate the text's themes of resilience and strength.” ―Shelf Awareness

Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2020
I haven’t given this book to my daughter just yet. It will be one of her 2020 Christmas books. However I did read over it & I like it. This book isn't literally about rainbows but it’s more symbolic of our culture and what our people did for us. #BLM
