Reading Time

By Glasher and Ray Robinson

Logan and Lauren were excited to read What Will Kami E Bee? In the book, the main character Kami E searches to determine what occupation she will have in the future. Through exploration of different paths and conversations with friends who can be found in nature, Kami E learns about various careers. For Logan and Lauren, the best part of the book was the fact that Kami E looks like them, an African American young lady. Representation Matters!

Throughout the book, Logan points to pictures and says the names and roles of Kami E’s friends. Lauren made predictions about what career Kami E would choose and why. Logan then attempted to reread the book herself based on what she remembered, using the pictures and adding her own details on occasion. In the end, the Robinson girls concluded if Kami E can, so can they! Logan decided she wants to be a doctor and Lauren a medical professor. This was absolutely fitting since the author, Dr. Jasmine Weiss, works in both of those capacities as a pediatrician and an assistant professor at UNC Chapel Hill Department of Pediatrics. The icing on the cake is that Dr. Weiss also looks like them. We highly recommend this book, which we purchased on Amazon.
