    Fun to read!

    As a parent reading books repetitively, this book is a relief to read because of it's fun, rhythmic prose! It dips into the cliche at times but has a great message that we are all different and the same and we should love ourselves for who we are. The big, colorful pages are vibrant and easy to absorb. My just-2 y.o. enjoys it even though it is mostly over her head, the rhyming and easy-to-act out descriptions entertain her thoroughly. I highly recommend this book for any age.

    what the world needs now

    This book is an inspiration for children and parents everywhere around the world. Everyone looks different in their skin. But this teaches everyone to accept and believe in themselves through clever rhyme and wonderful pictures. 'The Skin You Live In' should be in every library, and every home.

    Preschooler Says this is her Nightly STAR

    This rhythmic poem with pictures of children, encourages each of us to look in the mirror and celebrate who we are and the joy of friendship. This is a collection of simply presented thoughts about self-esteem, acceptance, and diversity.Our Preschooler loves the the rhymes and talks to the children staring at her from the page. We've had nightly requests for this book for more than a week now. What a great book! The message is visible in simple phrases with comparative language that young readers can comprehend. It offers kids a positive, new way to look at the world. Parents will enjoy the book as much for its fun as for its message. The illustrations are bright and engaging; and the poem is just what you want to introduce acceptance and the beauty of diversity ... without being onerous or dour.

    Amazing Book for all ages!

    This is a wonderful book with a message that is not only important but beautifully delivered. I am insisting that my 5 year old's class use this book as discussion material.
