Overview

The Skin I'm In explains to children, in a warm and respectful manner, that the color of a person's skin has nothing at all to do with his or her talents, dreams, likes and dislikes, or abilities. The text likens a person's skin to a wrapper on a piece of candy, and to the wrapping paper on a gift. Much of the text is simple enough to foster a love of reading in young readers, while the overall message is engaging enough to retain the attention of seasoned readers and caregivers. The playful, vibrant illustrations invite children of all ages to relate to the many youngsters pictured in the book, and to its two main characters, Grandma and Mya. The book inspires questions and answers that encourage an appreciation of each person as an individual who is special, unique, and a gift to the world.
