Praise for Dreams for a Daughter
"Brought to life by Pinkney’s now-signature brushy, colorful illustrations with bold ink lines, this lyrical expression of hope opens with a mother holding her baby while the two gaze into each other’s eyes. . . A beautifully illustrated, uplifting tribute to Black girls and to the mothers who love them boundlessly."
