I'm sure there was a good story behind this, but it would have probably made a better biography for an older child than a story for young children. I wouldn't recommend it, because the story was presented in such a racist manner constantly differentiating based on color. It wasn't about a girl who overcame challenges it was about black this black that. I don't want to teach my children racism I want to teach them that we are all human beings, and this much emphasis on color and race teachers the opposite of that. The story was limited and very backseat to making sure everyone was aware that black people are different. Just such a bad example for young children.
