Ages 4 to 8

A touching and stunningly illustrated ode to the homes—and loved ones—that raise us, perfect for fans of Hair Love and Love Is.

While her mother puts the finishing touches on her twists, a young Black girl asks what it means to be homegrown. Touring heartening memories and rooms throughout the house warmed by family, Mama and Granny explain that home isn't just a place but rather a reflection of people who support and love one another.

With lush and nostalgic illustrations reminiscent of Oge Mora and Julie Flett, Homegrown is a stunning debut picture book that reminds us to lift up the places—and people—we call home.

About the Author

DeAnn Wiley is a self-taught illustrator and licensed mental health professional born and raised in Detroit. She is an advocate for social justice as she sits at the intersection of many identities: Black, Woman, Queer, & (Dis)Abled, and stands in solidarity with those communities that she is not a member of. When she's not painting, she's learning, growing, and healing, with each phase of her journey depicted in her art.
