Perfect Picture Book Friday
Today’s delightful book is Not Quite Snow White (Harper, 2019) by Ashley Franklin and Ebony Glenn.
“For Tameika, it was always the right time and place to dance and sing.” She’s confident, adorable, and fun. She’s played different roles in a variety of shows. She has a helpful attitude with her friends. But when she plans to audition for Snow White, she hears whispers that make her doubt.
My favorite line is “She loved herself as much as she loved music and movement.” I love the ending. And I love the art–perfect marriage between words and illustration.
