Magnificent Homespun Brown: A Celebration

Magnificent Homespun Brown: A Celebration


by Samara Cole Doyon, Kaylani Juanita (Illustrator)

Hardcover, 32 pages

Ages 6-8


Told by a succession of exuberant young narrators, Magnificent Homespun Brown is a story -- a song, a poem, a celebration -- about feeling at home in one’s own beloved skin.

With vivid illustrations by Kaylani Juanita, Samara Cole Doyon sings a carol for the plenitude that surrounds us and the self each of us is meant to inhabit.


ABSOLUTELY LOVELY. - Jacqueline Woodson: National Ambassador for Young People's Literature.
