Our favorite classic fairy tales reimagined with children of color
Two years ago, I discovered author Rachel Isadora. She has several children’s books featuring characters of color. Many of her stories are set on the continent of Africa and feature all black (human) characters.
This is one of Audrey’s favorite books. “Tangled” is her favorite Disney movie, over the summer I wanted to introduce her to the non-Disney version of the story. I was so happy when I came across this book!
Also by Rachel Isadora, this retelling of the story features many color photos. Once again Audrey comments on the hair, but also the many prints and patterns used throughout the book. The book also includes a small map of the continent of Africa, along with points detailing where this version of the story came from.
