About

The image of Peanut is one that little 'girls of color' can relate to. Few if any ongoing children's book series have an African American child as the main character and a female at that.  One little girl's reaction, on seeing Peanut, was "OH, She looks like me !" 

Each book will address a series of themes that transcend gender, race or any other kind of social segmentation. “Book 1 focuses on introducing Peanut's  family and showing her bond with her Daddy. 

 In later books, fear, hurt, unconditional love, differences between one another and the important power of dignity will be addressed. Each narrative will wrap up with a very positive series of lessons that should resonate with young readers long after they have turned the last page.”

Although it was only recently published, Daddy’s Girl, Book 1 in the series has already been on the publisher’s Best Sellers list. And now, the first review is in from Kidgrade (kidgrade.com). Click on the link below to see the review.

Risks and challenges

DADDY'S GIRL, book one in the series is already published. CHOCOLATE CHIP, book two, is ready for publication. The KickStarter campaign is to raise funds to publish book two. My HOPE is that each future book will have enough sales to finance the publication of the next book in the series.

Thank You in advance for your help !
