"Another story about Haiti and another great opportunity to help keep Haiti alive in our kids, and in us! Cute story, love how it describes "going to market" and shows in a subtle light-hearted way how challening that daily journey can be."
"Really good for fostering empathy with animals and very educational all around. Animals are in general treated differently in Haiti than in wealthier countries, so if you have pets, consider this one."
"Wonderful book about adoption and not looking like his parents and touches on Twitchy's feelings about it and the family's commitment. It's direct enough that our kids "got" the messg and provided opportunities for great discussions, while still being cute and fun to read. Often requested to be read by our kids. They really seem to relate to Twitchy."
"The first few pages my daughter always wants to skip but she loves the rest, is drawn in by the tutu and loves how it incorporates african dance and drumming (something we've done together) -- love it!"
"This CD is great for adults to listen to too. I think Haitian-American kids need to be in touch w/African-Amer. culture & jazz is an important part of black history & music history in general. Fun CD!"
"My daughter looooves this book and really considers it thoughtfully. I really think this has subtly shaped her self-image in a positive way. Great messages and empowering for any girl! (about a black princess whose beauty is questioned and her road to self-discovery and the definition of real beauty -- lovely stuff)"
