Written by Ysaye M. Barnwell and illustrated by Synthia Saint James, "No Mirrors in My Nana's House" is a fabulous addition to any elementary school library or music class! This book tells the story of a little girl, growing up in a poverty-stricken area, who learns that there is beauty all around her. There are no mirrors to see that clothes might not fit properly or be stylish, no mirrors to see perceived body issues, no mirrors to see differences in society. "No Mirrors in My Nana's House" is a story of encouragement and acceptance, and it would be a great way to discuss diversity and tolerance with young children from preschool to grade 3. The included CD features the same titled song, performed by Barnwell's acclaimed a capella group Sweet Honey in the Rock. Use the song as a sing-along! The CD also contains a narration of the story.
