Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade
A young brown girl loves the feeling of sitting out in the sun, basking in her beautiful, brown skin. Her skin comes with a rich history and power that should be celebrated. It is strong, it is ambitious, it is bold, it is soft, it is sweet, it is fearless, it is special. Basking in My Brown is a poetic tribute to the dark-skinned girls of the world.
