There was a little snag in getting my order shipped, but I was contacted by the company explaining what occured and was promised that the matter would be rectified ASAP. Although I ordered the book used, it was in good condition as the seller described, and the CD that came along with it was in working order as well.

I'm rating this experience five stars because the seller took the time to contact me personally and did everything in their power to satisfy my need. I will definitely order from this seller again.No Mirrors in My Nana's House: Musical CD and Book

The story itself is a must read not just for families of color, but for all families of every background. It conveys a message of hope no matter what your situation or background is - a message that says that no matter what you look like on the outside, no matter what your situation in life is, no matter what your status, no matter how much or how little you do have, you are still a worthwhile individual and beauty can be found in just about anyone and anything.

My daughter loves this story. We homeschool and this book is on our reading list. The great part is that the SAG Foundation (http://www.storylineonline.net/) has certain actors/actress read certain stories. My little one can follow along w/ the book as they read. I believe Tia and Tamera read this story. Check out the site, very cool.

My children and I discovered this book and audio book when they were in elementary school. When one of us looks a mess, either my daughter or I sing, "There were no mirrors in my Nana's house." She is 20 now. We love it. I bought this to share with future generations. The CD is included, as it should be.

Another music teacher here to recommend this book. My first graders LOVE LOVELOVE IT!!!! They love the pictures, they love singing the song - even the shy children, and at the end of the song they always ask to hear it again.

Plus, I wish you could've heard the interesting conversations we've had about why the people don't have faces.

I love Sweet Honey and I love this book!

I use this book to teach self acceptance and accepting differences with one another. I would highly reccommend purchasing the book with the CD from which this story was inspired. It will leave your class singing, " No Mirrors In My Nana's House" throughout the day.

I should have heeded prior poor reviews. I suppose some parts of this book provide a source of optimism for children who unfortunately live in the circumstances depicted in the book (girl making the best of walking through litter filled hallways etc.). I may have given this book a higher rating if not for the portion stating that the child did not know that her nose was too big or skin too dark since her grandmother did not own a mirror. I get what the author was trying to convey, but I think for little children, the message may be confusing. I also didn't care for the little girl eating peeling paint off the wall. This is supposed to be a children's book, but somehow I feel it may be better suited for adults.
Fabulous! I'm glad to have a chance to show children that how that how they look is not important, and that not all children look like them. A wonderful book on it's own, but the CD makes it the best.
