From the Inside Looking Out is unlike any childrens book youve read. This collection of short stories inspired by the authors own childhood growing up in rural Barbados in the 1930s is as educational as it is entertaining, promoting cultural awareness of the African diaspora through games, meals, and everyday practices.

The stories follow young Porgy as he navigates his paternal grandmothers prejudice toward his peasant mother and learns to creatively overcome the obstacles to his personal goals. The winsome boy soon becomes a town favorite, proving himself to be clever, imaginative, and kind-and his adventures are sure to encourage similar qualities in all who read his tales.

From stories illustrating the effects of colonialism to more typical coming-of-age experiences such as learning to read and getting a dog, this playful and inspirational book is great for both classroom and home. Porgys life doesnt only teach kids about another time and culture; his experiences will also spark their creative thinking and motivate them to chase their own dreams.
