#BlackPearlsBookGifts: Nandi’s Unexpected Gift by Ama Kuma. Listen to the audio showcase: http://www.audioacrobat.com/note/CCqW2lBk

Nandi’s Unexpected Gift Book Review – In Nandi’s Unexpected Gift, Ama Kuma creates a character and a community full of Black love and Black beauty where children not only thrive to be their very best, but also see their beauty reflected in their culture and the nurturing of mamas, grandmas, teachers and friends, especially in the face of life lessons that yield the greatest gift of all: Love.  

All children will see themselves in Nandi and her struggle. At time when representation of Black children in American publishing is lacking, Ama Kuma gifts us Nandi’s Unexpected Gift, a story that is, in the words of Alice Walker, a ‘temple of our familiar.
