Khalil Munir, is a performer, educator, tap dancer and speaker, born 1 pound 4 ounces. He tells his story to young ears and adults alike. He was diagnosed with dyslexia at age 14. Prior to this discovery, he always felt "less than". Now, as an educator, he feels strongly towards the importance of representation. He wrote this book to show little brown boys that they are powerful, no matter their circumstances. He wants all readers to know they are worthy, capable and have the right to wear their crown and stand in their power.
*All three books are based on a true story...young Khalils true story
This first book is a story of a boy with a learning difference who transforms his anxiety into courage for a huge triumph!
Book two follows Malik on a journey through performing arts camp. He learns that respecting yourself takes patience.
In this third book, Malik must practice his "A,B,C's" at a new school for students with learning differences. He helps a friend find his crown along the way!
