Shelly Books and More would love to introduce to you, Janessa the Phenomenal Brown Skin Girl, written by, Tia Oteng and Illustrated by, Bulankina Ka.


What can I say about this phenomenal book! There is just so much to say. Where do I start? The illustration is phenomenal. The colors are so alive and vibrate. The moment the pages opens to your child, a big wonderous smile will begin to glow. A smile that will speak of love and confidence as they lay eyes on Janessa for the first time.


Knowing that children are like little buds that are looking to bloom, we must treat them like the little delicate beautiful flowers that they are. This book allows parents and educators to do exactly just that. Through the journey that Janessa tells, children's minds will be nourished with love, goodness and kindness.
