Braiding Crowns of Friendship
Braiding Crowns of Friendship, by Christine Aldrich, is a children's book about an African American girl who learns to love her hair, and in doing so she helps to teach others about the beauty in diversity. As an African American, Christine decided to share her own life experiences when writing this book to ensure authenticity in her storytelling. Indeed, the friendship described between these pages belongs to the author and her real life best friend, showing us all what a powerful gift a true friend can be.
"God made each one of us different, and we have to love the differences we have. We are all God's children. Do not let that little girl make you question who you are. You are beautiful just the way you are."
