I love this book for so many different reasons! The storyline, the illustrations, but most of all because it highlights the bond between a father and a daughter.
Having a good and loving father in a child's life is crucial in the development of any child. Sadly, in the African-American community we often hear of Black fathers being absent. This was true for me growing up as a kid. My dad didn't come into my life until around age 18. I used to wonder how my life would be different if my dad was present from the beginning.
I love the relationship this father and daughter share during the historic moment of the Million Man March that took place back in October 1995. I also love that this book celebrates an important gathering of men who all came together in peace for one common goal. No violence, no egos, no competition. Just men who were committed to inspiring and empowering themselves and each other to make positive changes in their families and communities.
