This is a wonderful book to continually read to my three-year old, but also my older children because it shows the diversity of various ethnicities. We do not associate each ethnicity to a color, because in reality, we aren't any solid color, we're humans made up of different shades and no two shades of people are identical! This book introduces this and racial diversity to the young mind but also reminds our mature minds reading it, that we are ALL beautiful SHADES of PEOPLE!
