Crowned with Glory by Dorena Williamson, Shellene Rodney (Illustrator)





An ode to Black hair and Black girl joy, this joy-filled rhyming picture book invites young readers into the world of a young Black girl as she rocks her God-given beauty.

Hello, world! I’m a gift from above.
I already know that I am loved.

Gazing around with a great big grin—
there’s a whole wide world for me to take in.
From the hair on her head to the tips of her toes, Azira knows that she is awesome! And whether it’s styled in twists, curls, braids, Bantu knots, a textured bun, or left totally natural, her hair is just one of the countless things that helps Azira celebrate who God made her to be. She’s able to live out a beautiful story because God has crowned her with glory—and Azira wants you to do the same!
Young readers will be inspired by this empowering, uplifting reminder to always be and love who God created them to be.

My Review

A sweet, beautifully illustrated book to share with your little one.

I shared with my four year old, and she loved this book, showing a newborn to all grown up! The book follows the life of a black girl, and how much she is loved, and how much she can accomplish!

I received this book through the Publisher Waterbrook, and was not required to give a positive review.
