The inspiring true story of Toni Morrison, an African American woman who came from humble roots in Lorain, Ohio, and rose to become one of the greatest writers in modern history. 

How do you tell a story?

Toni Morrison was, and remains, a true titan of the arts. The lasting impact of her work, both as an editor and author, simply cannot be overstated. But before she was the Pulitzer Prize– and Nobel Prize–winning author that we all know and love, she was a little girl in Ohio, the only Black child in her first-grade classroom and the only student who was able to read.

This is the true story of how that young girl left her impact on a world that she loved—the world of literature.

Expertly told by award-winning author Carole Boston Weatherford and with gorgeous painted illustrations by debut illustrator Khalif Thompson, this is a must-have picture book biography for parents, teachers, and librarians alike. It celebrates Toni Morrison’s legacy while inspiring readers to create art, believe in themselves, and strive for greatness.
