Description


Sometimes a mirror shows us more than a reflection. In Harlem, New York, nine-year-old Dominique is a happy African-American girl living with her loving parents. One day, her construction manager father brings a mirror home. To Dominique, it looks like a regular mirror... until one day when she sees a young girl named Sarah staring back at her. And what's more - Sarah can talk to Dominique But Sarah looks a bit different than what Dominique's used to. In the magic mirror, Dominique sees Sarah and members of her family working hard while wearing raggedy clothes. This is such a revelation to Dominique that she decides to research African-American history for clues about Sarah and her family... which soon leads to joy in the most unexpected way. In Dominique & The Mirror, author Cassie weaves an inspiring tale about the power of love and dignity. Your child will learn lessons about history and the proud story of one very special family. And like Dominique, you and your child will be inspired to look in the special mirrors in your own lives - because who knows what you'll find?
