Alphabet Affirmations for Boys of Color is a simple, daily go-to for positive affirmations. Author Alfreida McKinney, a school counselor and mother to an Afro-Latino boy, wanted to create a resource full of positive, Black and brown representation. For each letter of the alphabet, she lists three adjectives that young boys of color can use to boost their self-esteem.

I am artistic, amazing, and active. 

I am brave, blissful, and blessed. 

Alongside the text are vibrant and joyous illustrations of brown boys reading, dancing, lending a helping hand, and much more. It’s a book with a simple premise but powerful message.
