My Day with the Panye

"To carry the panye, we move gracefully, even under the weight of the sun and the moon." In the hills above Port-au-Prince, Haiti, a young girl named Fallon wants more than anything to carry a large woven basket to the market, just like her Manman. As she watches her mother wrap her hair in a mouchwa, Fallon tries to twist her own braids into a scarf and balance the empty panye atop her head, but realizes it’s much harder than she thought. BOOM! Is she ready after all?

Lyrical and inspiring, with vibrant illustrations highlighting the beauty of Haiti, My Day with the Panye is a story of family legacy, cultural tradition, and hope for the future. Readers who are curious about the art of carrying a panye will find more about this ancient and global practice in an author’s note at the end. Steeped in local flavor, but with an exuberant, universally appealing story about wanting to be more grown up, this book is a sweet reminder that somethings take practice and time, but they'll come in the end.
