A Crooked Crown Day
By Brandie Hollingsworth
Illustrated by Agus Prajogo
A Crooked Crown Day is about an African-American girl who is just having a bad day. She is teased at school, forgets her homework, and is laughed at by the kids at school. By the time she arrives home, her invisible crown, representing her inner strength, is about to fall to the ground! Fortunately, her grandmother is there to fix her crown with her hands and wise words.
We can all relate to this book. You know when you’re having one of those days where everything that can go wrong does? In this story everything that can go wrong does go wrong with this little girl – when she gets home get grandma let’s her know that everyone has days like that. We’ve just got to fix our crowns, hold our heads high and keep moving forward. I think it’s so important for children to know that days like this do happen, and not just to them but to everyone. They might not feel so alone knowing that they share this with others. A beautifully written story with stunning illustrations.
