This book is a beautiful and somewhat heartbreaking prayer from a Black parent to their Black son. Like all parents this one wishes for all the wonderful things one wishes for their child, but also has to address the very real concern of injustice, bigotry, hatred, and violence that he will have to face.

This is an uplifting, affirming, and powerful book. The combination of Weatherford's words and Pinkney's illustrations convey caring, compassion, and strength.

This is so incredibly beautiful. I even teared up while reading the lyrical verse. Not to be missed.
