ABC I love me by Miriam Muhammad is a wonderfully told and artistically illustrated story of empowerment and self-love for young children. The story depicts two main characters who happen to be dripping in chocolate, "melanated" skin tones. The story is dedicated to the author’s son and every black and brown girl and boy. Starting with “A is for afro”, then “B is for beautiful” is a great place to start considering the strong connection persons of color have to their hair and the “Black is beautiful” movement. Besides encouraging children to have positive character traits such as “confident”, “fearlessness”, and “talented”, they author also encourages the youth to express emotions such as “joy,” recognize one’s “royalty,” and embrace wholesome values such as gratitude, creating healthy habits for eating and exercise, and being open to trying new things.
