Samara Cole Dayon
Magnificent Homespun Brown
Magnificent Homespun Brown is an exploration of the natural world and family bonds through the eyes of a young, mixed-race narrator — a living, breathing, dazzlingly multi-faceted, exuberant masterpiece, firmly grounded in her sense of self-worth and belonging. This is a story, a poem, a song, a celebration — about feeling at home in your own beloved skin.
If Walt Whitman were reborn as a vibrant young woman of color, this is the book he might write. America, we hear you singing! With vivid illustrations by Kaylani Juanita, Samara Cole Doyon sings a carol for the plenitude that surrounds us and the self that each of us is meant to inhabit.
