OK! This is a thing. The Kinara’s Children Kwanzaa Coloring Book is now available on Amazon. I’m really excited to make this available and I learned a lot about the process over these many months. I wanted it to be fun and enjoyable, and I believe it is. I hope you all will get a kick out of it!

Aimed at a young audience, the Kinara’s Children project lies somewhere between picture books and comics but it’s not your typical superhero group. They’re regular people from the neighborhood. Each character possesses amazing skills based on hard work and determination. Eventually they’ll come to learn why they’ve been brought together and the awesome power of the collective.

Kinara’s Children are jewels. Your babies bring Kwanzaa more alive for me and my family as well as adding so much more to the beautiful Kwanzaa experience. I LOVE Kinara’s Children.

Our Chicago based CEO Superheroes Family has found Darryl Crosby’s Kinara’s Children to be delightful, breathing new life into the celebration of Kwanzaa.
—Asabi Carroll, Co-Founder CEO Superheroes

This is beautiful work. Darryl Crosby is not only a gifted artist, but also a master teacher of history and culture. This is an amazingly creative way to teach children about Kwanzaa.
