Staff Reviews


Afiya is a beautifully illustrated story about Afiya, whose dress records memories of her childhood. It is written by award-winning Jamaican poet, James Bery. Every night, her adventures of the day are imprinted on the dress. Every morning, her dress is white again, ready for a new adventure. I wish I had a dress that could hold memories like these! But, at least, I can have this book!

— From A Story About Afiya

Some people have dresses for every occasion but Afiya needs only one. Her dress records the memories of her childhood, from roses in bloom to pigeons in flight, from tigers at the zoo to October leaves falling. A joyful celebration of a young girl's childhood, written by the late Coretta Scott King Book Award-winning Jamaican poet James Berry.
