is the first and only
children’s book introducing Delta Sigma Theta Sorority to
children. My Mommy Is A Delta, published by Fresh Publishing,
LLC, whose mission statement is "setting trends in the publishing
industry" has graciously fulfilled a void in the children's
book market. Never before has information about African American
fraternities and sororities been published for the general public,
in a children's book. As trendsetters, Fresh Publishing's children's
books division, "Teach Me Greek", explores the positive
aspects and powerful images of African American sororities and
fraternities and their significance in African American history.
Teach Me Greek's mission is to teach and educate youth about the
positive influences of fraternities and sororities and will include
other titles: My Mommy Is An AKA, My Mommy Is A Sigma Gamma Rho,
My Mommy Is A Zeta, My Daddy Is A Kappa, My Daddy Is An Omega,
My Daddy Is An Alpha, My Daddy Is An Iota Phi Theta, My Daddy
Is APhi Beta Sigma. The first-ever series will chronicle the nine
existing, also known as the "Divine 9" African American
greek letter organizations in an inspiring light that will make
young children proud of their heritage.
"My Mommy Is A Delta" is a beautifully charming and
a warmly chronicled history of Delta Sigma Theta, done in a cute,
yet informative manner. The storyline is warm, set in little Ashley's
first grade class where her assignment is to do a report on an
organization that does positive things for the community. The
characters are adorable and throughout the book the reader will
be mesmerized with the vibrant color. Sample text from the story
include "I hope to make a difference in the world
on holidays such as Thanksgiving the members of
Delta Sigma Theta give out turkeys to the less fortunate".
My Mommy Is A Delta, will provide a periodical heirloom for the
members of Delta Sigma Theta to introduce the organization to
their children, who as all Deltas pray will one day become Delta's
themselves. It will also act as a historical book for any culture.
The 45 page narrative includes lots of colors and positive images
of the 90 year organization in an easy to read children's books
for little girls ranging in ages from 2-10 years old. All of this
for only $20.00.
"The ability to find great quality and positive African
American children's books on this topic seemed to elude us all,
but now it doesn't have to," states Audra. I found it interesting
that there weren't any children's books available about sororities
and fraternities because as our Greek members have children, we
want to read to them about our organizations, since we're so proud
of them. I thought this would be a very positive thing to do for
our children. I have two little girls, Ashley and Tiffany, and
I want them to know about Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and the other
great sororities and fraternities as early as possible. They can
then see the positive images of professional and upwardly mobile
women in our society and that they as black women are our future.
Someone once said "I believe the children are our future"
I totally agree!
