Tamika's Hair

Tamika lives in an island paradise where the sun warms her face and the ocean waves tickle her toes. She should be very happy, but she is not, and it is all because of her hair. All the other girls have shiny, silky hair that slides over their shoulders and flutters in the breeze. Her hair is not shiny or silky and instead of fluttering, it bounces in one big curly clump. Tamika’s hair makes her feel different. She thinks she will never make friends with the other girls until the day she meets the old lady with skin like dry coconuts...


This early reader story will help children see that they don't have to look like everyone else in order to fit in. They are special just the way they are. This story is a great read-aloud tale and is available on


My Name is Noel

Miami, Florida in the 1980s was not a friendly place for Haitian immigrants. It was especially hard for teenagers trying to fit in. In 1984 a young Haitian teenager, Phede Eugene, committed suicide rather than face the shame of being “outed” as a Haitian to his American friends. This middle-grade fictional story does not address Phede’s suicide, but it is informed by the struggles of Haitian and other immigrants trying to acclimate to their new homes.

When Noel and his family move from French-speaking Haiti to Miami, they think they are moving to a better life. But for Noel, the move is anything but better. Gramps seems to be getting sicker, Papa and Mama are fighting all the time, and school is terrible! Even soccer, the sport he loves more than anything, seems out of his reach as the boys at his school tease him for being Haitian. Maybe changing his name to sound less Haitian will help him to fit in.
