    We are so many colors

    This book is a very easy read for most children. In a very non preachy/moralistic tone it talks about all the different colors of us. All the colors that make up the neighborhood. Being described in flavors and seasons makes sure that all colors are seen as equally unique and equally worth celebrating. It is simple and uplifting, especially for children who seem to be worried about what color they are and where they belong. This books says very quietly, you are who you are and that makes you wonderful.

    Wonderful for Teaching Young Children Diversity!

    This book is beautifully illustrated, but even more importantly, it tells the story of a little girl that discovers that we are all very different even if we 'look the same.'

    Color of Us

    I read this book to my Kindergarten class and they loved it. It is a really beautiful story. I also enjoyed that the skin colors are compared to foods, such as: honey, cinnamon, peaches, and chocolate. This book is really sweet.

    Fabulous kid's book about all races

    This a great book about a girl and her artist mother and the realization that all her friends are all different colors and shades. This is a great book for kids to start realizing that people come in all different shades and that is the way the world really is and it is beautiful thing.
