I am always on the lookout for books that celebrate our differences and feature children of all races. That’s why I was so excited to read Penny and the Magic Puffballs by Alonda Williams. It is a book that celebrates natural beauty and self worth.
Alonda Williams wrote the book “to inspire young people- especially girls. I want them to know that it is ok to be different and they are perfect just the way they are.”
Penny is a girl who wants her hair to be like everyone else’s, long and flowy. She asks her mother if she can wear it down instead of in braids as she usually does. Her mother assures her that her hair is perfect just the way it is, but they could style it into puffballs the next day. She calls them magic puffballs.
I won’t reveal the entire story to you, so you can see how magic these puffballs really are or how Penny’s friends react to this special hair style. But trust me, this story is worth sharing with your children. This story is all about empowering children to feel proud of their features and how it’s ok to be different. That is what makes this book perfect for all children.
Due to the popularity of her first book, Alonda Williams wrote another adventure called My Friend Roxie, where Penny learns how to be a friend.
