Meet the Author
Ama Darkwa Holmes is a wife, mother, educator and a lifelong learner. She is a first-generation immigrant from Ghana, West Africa and at 6 years old she and her family moved to America to pursue educational opportunities and a better life. Throughout her childhood, her family and other adults in her life guided and encouraged her to learn, believe in herself, always try her best, and always have courage. As she got older, she began to permit herself to dream big and to set and pursue her goals by consistently seeking knowledge, learning from others and learning from her mistakes.
Today, Ama is an educator and an entrepreneur who feels fortunate to have the opportunity to pay forward her many blessings. She loves writing books with important messages, morals and lessons for children and she diligently seeks opportunities to serve and inspire children everywhere. Her vision is that they too will realize their very own power and potential.
"I love the message for young readers. It assures them that they can do anything that they set their minds to. I like the challenging vocabulary which will be an asset for gifted readers. I like the tips at the end. More importantly, the learning extension at the end."
"I love everything about this book. The main character is darling, the text is lovely and the illustrations are beautiful. I love the diversity and the message to children is so important."
"This story is meaningful to Kids & will also make the Adult readers think. I got the rhyming straight away, I sort of sang my way through and it made me smile."
