Cornrows

A classic Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award winner, now back in print with an inviting new cover!

As Mama and Great-Grammaw braid their children’s hair into the striking cornrow patterns of Africa, their gentle fingers weave the design while their lulling voices weave the tale of their rich history.

Every design has a name and means something in the powerful past and present richness of the Black tradition. As Mama and Great-Grammaw work, Sister and her little brother MeToo learn what wealth is theirs to share, just for the braiding.
