Book Overview

A picture book for magical yet imperfect girls everywhere, written by debut author Ashley Franklin and perfect for fans of such titles as Matthew A. Cherry's Hair Love, Grace Byers's I Am Enough, and Lupita Nyong'o's Sulwe.

Tameika is a girl who belongs on the stage. She loves to act, sing, and dance--and she's pretty good at it, too. So when her school announces their Snow White musical, Tameika auditions for the lead princess role.

But the other kids think she's not quite right to play the role.

They whisper, they snicker, and they glare.

Will Tameika let their harsh words be her final curtain call?

Not Quite Snow White is a delightful and inspiring picture book that highlights the importance of self-confidence while taking an earnest look at what happens when that confidence is shaken or lost. Tameika encourages us all to let our magic shine.

   So cute
I found this book to be so adorable ''. Many people complained about fat shaming by using the word Chubby and not wanting to taint their children with this mentality, but did not acknowledge her being too brown '' for a fictional character. There draw your own conclusions. While understandable parents want to protect their children's innocence, the safest place to have these conversations begins at home. Either way, I highly recommend this book.
   This book is a Winner
What a beautiful story! It is also beautiful illustrated, so my 2yo was immediately engaged. This story elicits real prejudices, but in an age appropriate way for young children, and this story addresses empathy from them too!
   So very important!
If only this book could have been read as a child to me... it truly could have changed my life. As a mixed girl, who grew up in the theater world, I was always wrestling with the feeling that I was enough. When I was reading this book, I shed tears of sadness and joy and was so excited to share it with the little ones in my life! This book is for any and all grown-ups who have few of their own colors in their lives. I would also encourage this book to be shared with children who are not color-conscious to promote a conversation that challenges us to navigate historical norms!
   A book for ALL girls.
Book is awesome! The representation of beautiful girls is colored! The message is inspirational and appropriate for all ages.
   Perfect book for any child of color growing up in a predominately caucasian neighborhood.
I am a Caucausian and grew up in a predominantly Filipino area. I remember almost every halloween, I was made fun because there were no chinese versions of batman or whatever. This humiliation has always affected me. I now have daughters of my own who will soon be in the same situation, as they noticed that their skin is not like Elsas. I have thus received this book. I hate to admit it, but it made me tear. It shows how a confident little girl was filled with such doubt because of her own prejudices and how she overcame it with the love and support of her parents. My daugthers now know that they can be whoever they want, even if their skin is different.
   Body image warning!
It actually caught me by surprise that I had to change the words because I don 't want my daughter to even think this way...
   Made Me Cry
This one really captured my six-year-old, who is very confident, but struggles with acceptance.
It brought a tear to my eye honestly. I bought this to read to my son, but I think it means more to me.
