Editorial Reviews


Praise for Denene Millner, her blog, and My Brown Baby:

“[Millner] here delivers the finest selections from her award-winning blog MyBrownBaby.com, which soulfully and hilariously depicts the delights and sorrows of child rearing from a black perspective. While few blogs on this topic make it to publication, Millner’s deserves every prize earned. Her writing is acutely on target. Holding nothing back, and speaking through raw truth, she gives a keen yet grounded take on parenting from the black viewpoint, both educating and validating readers along the way. . . . Millner is on top of every political, media, and cultural front, making her one of the most relevant and aspiring writers on the issue of black parenting.” —Library Journal, starred review

“Many of [the essays] are humorous, some are profound, and more than a few are thought-provokingly political. . . . Millner is a natural, conversational writer, and these bite-size essays deserve a wide readership.” —Booklist

“[A] must-read . . . more destination than blog.” —New York Times

“The best site for thoughtful, fierce advice about parenting from a Black perspective.” —Ebony

“For brown moms looking for a space to write and talk about pregnancy, parenting, healthy eating and pop-culture portrayals of parenting, this blog is their utopia.” —The Root

“Insightful and powerful. . . . A must-read for mothers raising children of color—and for parents everywhere.” —The Parenting Patch

“While the shelves are full to bursting with pregnancy and childrearing books, Millner tackles the subject from a different angle, one that’s perhaps more rare and that speaks directly to parents without a lot of fuss. Millner uses humor, but it’s clear when she’s being serious; she’s also common-sense and offers a nice mix of old-school, modern ideas, and new viewpoints on things your Mama never had to consider.” —Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Bookworm Sez

“I'm flagging page after page in this must-read.” —White Sugar, Brown Sugar

“There are so many good nuggets of information and great essays found in the pages of My Brown Baby. . . . While this book is geared towards African-Americans raising Black and Brown children, it can be read and enjoyed by people of all races.” —Here Wee Read

“Required reading for parents of all shades―and it will help them understand the perspectives of their fellow parents.” —Flagpole.com

“An eye opening read . . . . A must read for anyone that has a child ‘different’ than themselves.” —Kelly’s Thoughts On Things

“There is no one size fits all manual, but Denene Millner is knocking down the fourth wall of Black Parenting in her newest book. . . . This is the parenting book we all need, and it is carving out a new lane in the Parenting Genre.” —D’BABETTA

“What you’ve come to expect since 2008 from the My Brown Baby site—that purposeful, gleeful recognition of parenting while black—you’ll get in the essays in this book.” —Arnebya

“Revealing her own trials and triumphs, Denene fosters a community of [parents] dedicated to making the next generation as powerful as it can be.” —For Harriet
