Once again I was delighted to work with the writer and publisher of Anna Carries Water, Olive Senior and Tradewind Books, on a second children’s picture book. Both stories are centered on empowering young black girls, and building a foundation of self-love within them.
Anna fetches water from the spring every day, but she can’t carry it on her head like her older brothers and sisters can. In this charming and poetic family story set in Jamaica, Commonwealth Prize-winning author Olive Senior shows young readers the power of determination, as Anna achieves her goal and overcomes her fear.
