About the Author
Amar L. Curtis is a gifted, artistic, intelligent, determined young man who has always had a love for learning and reading. When he was 4- 6 years old, he would find himself lost in a book. He would be underneath his covers laughing out loud as he imagined himself as one of the characters in the story. Amar would come over to his mother and retell the story with stars in his eyes and joy in his voice. During this time his mother worked with teens and adults many of whom could not read past the First-grade level. Oftentimes young black boys are made to believe reading is not “cool”. This book was written to let them know reading is the “coolest”! Felicia “Fe Fea” White Curtis is Amar’s mother, an Author, Doula, Health Coach, Healer, Speaker, Inspirational Recording Artist, advocate for equity and justice for children, families and communities. She is also the Founder of Growing Seeds, Inc. Felicia has an extensive background in working with children 0-5 years of age and has a clear understanding of the importance of the first 5-7 years of a child’s life. She understands this is where the attachment style develops, and their foundations for health. Their behavior and learning style develop during this time as well. This is a critical time and is crucial to their overall wellbeing and the trajectory of their lives. We decided to write and publish this book to encourage little black boys to embrace a love for reading.
