Reviewed by Erin Nicole Cochran for Readers' Favorite

Ebony and Her Crown by Nicole Marshall is an inspirational and educational children’s picture book that is delivered in a poetic rhyming style. The narrative is strong, realistic in terms of dialogue, and informative in a way that all nationalities will be able to learn from it. The illustrations are stunning in their details and showcase Ebony’s large crown in a way that feels so realistic. Ebony’s spunky personality is completely embodied in the illustrations created by Sekar Azahra. The images are fun, and bright, and take your eyes on a trip to a beautiful world, and a beautiful moment experienced between Ebony and her mother.

Nicole Marshall’s Ebony and Her Crown is a children’s picture book that I will not forget soon. There are too many picture books that are devoid of “real messages” and this is one of those rare books that speaks volumes about different cultures and how to acknowledge them as well as be respectful of them. This book is a glimpse into one little girl’s life and how she feels about her hair in the beginning as opposed to at the end. It is a children’s picture book that in my mind should be on the shelf or the iPad in every preschool or kindergarten class, as a way to keep all children informed on how we should respect everyone around us. This is a book for all ages.
