Product Details


“A necessary addition to all parenting and parent-teacher collections.”—Library Journal

“A stage-by-stage review of a child’s development—from tot to teenager. It shows how black children can successfully navigate through a society that is often hostile to them to in order to grow up to pursue a positive life… will prove helpful for anyone who will be in charge of young black children. And those who aren’t, take note: If you know parents too overwhelmed to read the book, do so for them and feed them the insights you gain; or if you know nonblack teachers, social workers or counselors who sincerely want to do the right thing by the black children with whom they deal, tell them about the book—or treat them to a copy.”—Tonya Bolden, Black Enterprise
“A very direct question-and-answer format—although there are no easy answers—responding to hard questions.”—Mike Maza, Dallas Morning News
