Black Magic, by Dinah Johnson, illustrated by R. Gregory Christie
Black is big like a star-filled sky and tiny like the sparkle in my daddy's eye.
Black is a look, a taste, a speed, an emotion. It's the surprising stripes on a zebra, the thrill of exploring a dark tunnel, and the sound of a mother's voice soothing her daughter to sleep.
Dinah Johnson's joyful language and R. Gregory Christie's vibrant illustrations create a picture of Blackness that is vivid, varied, and proud. 30 pages
