God creates a world filled with color. 'Then God blessed the colors with love, life, and purpose.' But there comes the time when the people God created on the Earth start to argue about what color God is--green like the plants, blue like the sky, and so on. It isn't long before they are saying that God has the color of their own skin--black, red, yellow, etc. Their disagreements lead nowhere, until a rainbow forms across the sky and, as one of the people says, they all realize that God is not any one color, but is the 'same colors as we are, [and] everyone is made from God's colors.' McDunn works at a monastery for Benedictine Sisters in Minnesota. Knutson's vivid full-page illustrations accentuate the simple story's lesson about the equality of all races in the eyes of God.
