My Doll, Keshia

by Eloise Greenfield
Illustrated by Jan Spivey Gilchrist

Published by Black Butterfly Children's Books, 1991
10 pages
ISBN: 0-86316-203-7

Ages 1 - 3

Four board books feature day-to-day activities of young African-American children, described in brief, first-person narratives. BIG FRIEND, LITTLE FRIEND compares and contrasts the ways in which a small boy plays and interacts with a friend who is older than he and a friend who is younger. DADDY AND I... recounts the many things a young boy and his dad do together. In I MAKE MUSIC a little girl describes a variety of ways she makes music, from playing a toy xylophone to tapping her leg. Another little girl talks about playing with her doll and with her friend David in MY DOLL, KESHIA. Simple, patterned texts, child-centered concerns and clear, boldly colored illustrations make these books appealing to the youngest listeners.
