Washington, DC, December 2, 2016 - This year, Magical Mirrors Children’s Book Fair is in for a special treat as kindergarten teacher-turned-author Sherrita Berry-Petus reads from her books, “Rock on With Your Afro Puffs” and “Smile Bright Chocolate Prince.” Both books seek to cultivate a positive self-image in black boys and girls.

Sankofa Video, Books & Cafe continues to expand its children’s literacy efforts through the 5th annual Magical Mirrors Children’s Book Fair, taking place December 10-11, 2016. Sankofa, which is an Adinkra term for “going back to our past in order to go forward,” aspires to provide a space for questioning and curiosity to flourish, and the Magical Mirrors Book Fair is an important part of that mission.

With the largest collection of African-American children’s literature in D.C., our books explore a broad array of subjects, from the whimsical to more difficult such as immigration, loss of a loved one and homelessness -- while still embracing the joys of counting cupcakes!

Sankofa is dedicated to offering a space where the greatness of diverse voices can be celebrated, and where children of color can see themselves, their communities and their unique situations represented in literature.

This will also be a great time to shop for holiday gifts for the children in your life! We hope to see you there!
