UNITED STATES: The official launch event and book signing for Brown Baby, Little Lady held yesterday. The event took place at the Lenox Square location of Atlanta-based CamiCakes (3393 Peachtree Rd., NE, Atlanta, GA 30309) from 13:00 to 16:00.
“I spoke with Layla all the time about the prospects that lie ahead for her,” said Kia Harris, Layla’s mom. “Associating with a Black woman entrepreneur like Andra Hall gives her intended access to what hard work and perseverance lead to.”
The power of positive self-talk
Outer determination begins with inner affirmations. Brown Baby, Little Lady is a book that explores the power of positive self-talk for girls ages 4 to 8. Kid author, Layla Sanaa, acknowledges the questions that young girls often wonder: “What if they don’t like me?”, “Are my hair and clothes good enough?”, “What if they don’t pick me for their team?” Brown Baby Little Lady helps other girls like her recognize the best in themselves.
Featuring an African-American girl as the main character, Layla speaks to the beauty and possibility that lies within each individual girl while tackling the need for diversity in children’s books.
The pandemic brought a lot of challenges for families. Layla and her mother explored various ways to channel the strain, resulting in the writing and publication of Brown Baby, Little Lady. They also explored baking a stress-relieving indulgence. Now that things are starting to open back up, popular Atlanta cupcake chain, CamiCakes has agreed to host the launch of Brown Baby, Little Lady. An unexpected change in life resulted in an unexpected opportunity. Though Layla has participated in a few book signing events, the partnership with CamiCakes brings a new level of passion.
