This simple, charming story of a young girl and her mother will capture readers' hearts. In Mama & Me, Cozbi A. Cabrera perfectly captures nuances of African American culture with her beautifully bold illustrations and lyrical text. The book highlights the young girl's unique observations of the world and her robust imagination. The descriptive language helps create a distinctive sensory experience for readers. The divine bond between mama and daughter is delightfully celebrated in this must-read.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
