Parker Looks Up by Parker Curry and Jessica Curry

by Parker Curry and Jessica Curry
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

This book made me teary-eyed! 4-year-old Parker goes to the museum with her mom, little sister, and friend. While running amok, she sees one portrait that stops her in her tracks. It turns out the museum is the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, and the portrait is of Michelle Obama. Parker, a little Black girl, is mesmerized, and “in that moment, Parker saw more than just a portrait – she saw a road before her with endless possibilities.” That page is filled with pictures of Parker painting, dancing, playing basketball, being a scientist and chef, playing the violin.

Based on a true story; the moment was captured by a passerby and went viral. Parker and her family got to meet the First Lady and go on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
