Where Literary Legends Are Born

Happy Book Birthday To WASH DAY By Tiffany Golden!

Tiffany Golden’s newest picture book, WASH DAY, is out today with Mayo Clinic Press Kids! This lovely tale is an ode to Black hair and the powers of sisterhood.





“Wash Day has more to it than humor… Tiffany Golden’s story is sweet, and educates people.” —Cannonball Books

“I loved the feeling of Black Girl Joy that emanated throughout the story. Jelaya and Jazmin have a bond that made me smile inside, and you can feel the love in the family, from grandma to mom and the sisters.” —Goodreads
