Not Quite Snow White

Franklin, A.
Tameika, a young African American girl, loves to act and sing. When her school plans to stage Snow White she goes to audition for the lead part, but some classmates think she isn’t the right choice for a princess because of her skin colour and body type. Tameika undergoes a journey of self-acceptance, realizes that she can indeed play a princess, and proves those doubters wrong. Suitable to help foster a classroom environment to celebrate all learners, this timely, colourful picture book explores embracing diversity, challenging stereotypes, acceptance, biases around race and body image, empathy, self-expression, overcoming challenges, connecting with others, and self-confidence.
