America is not like a blanket - one piece of unbroken cloth. America is more like a quilt - many patches, many pieces, many colors, many sizes, all woven together by a common thread." ~ Rev. Jesse Jackson
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! Super cute! This sweet story is about a biracial little girl who stays home with (White) dad while her (Black) mom goes to the beauty shop for her weekly scheduled appointment. She "does" her daddy's hair while she anticipates what mommy will look like when she comes home.
