Now available as a board book, this tender story of self-acceptance will resonate with readers of all ages. When a boy is teased for looking different than the other kids—his skin is darker, his hair curlier—he tells his mother he wishes he could be more like everyone else. And she helps him to see how beautiful he really, truly is.

Here is a much-needed picture book that encourages all people, especially kids, to love themselves.

*Great for self-esteem building and exploring the beauty of our rich skin tones, all skin tones and colors, regardless of the color. *Good book for multicultural education. Would make a good addition to any classroom library to be used for picture book, read-aloud time.

Our main character in this story wants to be like his friends; he hates being dark skinned and having poofy hair and having a wide nose and having an unusual name and bright white teeth. His mom compares his hair to fudge frosting and his hair to cotton candy and the boy starts to take pride in his beautiful features. He grows to love being Chocolate Me!¿And then my moms said,`Wait one minute, my sweet! Can¿t you see?You have skin like velvet fudge frosting mixed in a bowl.(You can lick the spoon.)Cotton candy hair soft to the touch of my fingertips or braided like rows of corn with a twist.And your smile,¿ she says, `makes me so happy I could cry.No amount of money could buy how it makes me feel.For real!It¿s perfect.¿¿
