A Story About Afiya

Author: James BerryIllustrator: Anna Cunha

Afiya’s fine black skin contrasts beautifully with her flowing white dress, as she skips through a vibrant landscape. Afiya’s dress records the gorgeous memories of her childhood, from flowers in bloom to pigeons in flight, from tigers at the zoo to October leaves falling. A charming, visual story that celebrates beauty and diversity.
