An author's note in this audiobook shares that this story, inspired by her son, is intended as a conversation starter about racial injustice. The vibrant sound of author/narrator Tami Charles's voice is underscored by bouncy music. Long pauses between phrases help emphasize their meaning, and a chime alerts listeners to page turns. Charles affirms and reaffirms her son's importance, despite instances that might cause him to "question his place." Such instances include feeling uncomfortable in a classroom or hearing upsetting news stories. This audiobook provides a powerful offering to a young Black boy about his worth as it confirms and reconfirms that he matters. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
