For as long as he can remember, Skyler has felt like he doesn’t fit in. He looks different than his siblings and the other kids at school, who make fun of him and don’t want to be his friend. But after a little help and support from a friend, Skyler realizes his own worth and how special he truly is.
In Blacky: A Story of Confidence, readers will learn important lessons about confidence and love.




Skyler, like most of us, feels like he was born different. He doesn’t know how he will ever fit in. After a little guidance, a quick science lesson, and a whole lot of love, he learns he is more special than he could’ve imagined.

An uplifting story about a young boy’s journey to self-confidence, Blacky will encourage readers to embrace the things that make them different.

    I sent this email to my job about this amazing book and here is what I said!

    Hello Staff,

    In light of our amazing meeting yesterday I wanted to take a moment out of your day for everyone to look at this AMAZING book. The book is about an uplifting journey that a little black boy experiences with understanding and accepting his difference. It has a wonderful message and highlights moments in our meeting in regards to inter-sectional, socialization, colorism and support. Just remember that?

    A great story with beautiful illustrations and an amazing, necessary message of self love and confidence that ALL children of all ages should read or have read to them.

    My son (13) saw it on the table this morning after it was delivered, picked it up and read it and really loved the story and it’s message, illustration art and mini science lesson!

    I will be reading this plenty to my baby nephew, and picking up some copies for the little ones in my life.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Great Book ! Received it from my brother, and read It to my daughter and she loved it. The book gets a bit repetitive when talking about the main character’s “hate for his skin”. But overall, it’s a great book for helping children of ALL shades of brown feel comfortable and love the skin they are in. I particularly liked the part the gave a mini explanation of the power of melanin. We are ready for the Girl Version!
