Dear Black Girls is a letter to all Black girls. Every single day poet and educator Shanice Nicole is reminded of how special Black girls are and of how lucky she is to be one.

Illustrations by Kezna Dalz support the book's message that no two Black girls are the same but they are all special, and that to be a Black girl is a true gift.

In this celebratory poem, Kezna and Shanice remind young readers that despite differences, they all deserve to be loved just the way they are. (From Metonymy Press)
