Item Description...
Buist Hardison, an accomplished illustrator and poet, has created a set of characters that he calls "The Little Shorties" which represent different personalities, skin colors, and hairstyles among African American children.

Dee, Eze, Neze, Tee, and Zee are five African American children called Shorties. They are between six and seven years old. Dee, Tee, and Zee are girls; Eze and Neze are boys. These Shorties live in a world where magical things happen every day. They live in a world where the majority of the people they see are African American. They are never out-numbered. They live in a world where small dreams come true, and nothing truly bad ever happens. Their stories are about the joys and magic of childhood, like the little hurts a parent?s kiss can cure. Shorties attend church and just begin to go to school. They love each other; they love God; and God loves them

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not your ordinary picture book  May 1, 2009
The Five Shorties refers to a group of 6-and-7-year-olds who, according to author and illustrator Buist E. Hardison, represent different personalities, skin colors, and hairstyles among African American children. Each one is unique in his/her own way. The text begins:

Five little Shorties all in a row
like beautiful flowers, how sweet they grow!
Five little Shroties,
Watch them jump!
Watch them spin!
Full of daddy's hugs and momma's kisses,
watch them chase the wind.

Then each Shortie - Dee, Zee, Nze, Eze, and Tee - is described in turn. Little Shortie Dee is described first. Her description reads in part:

Little Shortie Dee never feels lost;
she knows God is always there.
Little Shortie Dee knows from the way
her momma braids her hair."

The book ends the Shorties each saying goodnight. The last line reads: "Shortie Nze says good night, God. Thanks for watching over our sleep."

The illustrations are bold with a cartoon-like quality, sure to appeal to the younger set.

What I Like: This book was written for an African-American audience.

What I Dislike: This isn't really what I would call a storybook. Rather, it's more a collection of short descriptions about each individual Shortie.

And, as you can see, the text is written in rhyme, making the narrative a bit jarring in places.

Overall Rating: However, having said all that, I still give it a good rating as it has some good qualities, that being each Shortie has a unique way to acknowledge his/her connection to God.

Age Appeal: 4-8.
