What Kind of Book is Brown Girl Dreaming

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader

This was fantastic! It’s a story/memoir told through poems, and it’s interesting and eye-opening and beautiful. This would be a great book to read with a middle elementary school child and talk about together, or for an older elementary or middle school child to read on his or her own.
