This is just what teachers concerned with equitable science education needa story for young children that demystifies skin color and celebrates diversity!"
Review by: Eileen Nolan, Helen Gordon Child Development Center, Portland State Univ - January 1, 2000
All the Colors We Are will be a much-appreciated addition to classroom and home libraries. It provides straightforward information for children, teachers, and parents that answers the often asked and hard-to-answer questions about how we get our skin color. All the Colors We Are, through a positive exploration and celebration of skin color differences, takes the power out of the prevailing color bias. The text, along with the suggested classroom activities, will provide a powerful teaching tool for the anti-bias classroom.
Review: Louise Derman-Sparks, author, Anti-Bias Curriculum - January 1, 2000
Preschoolers are curious about and construct their own theories about the differences in skin colors. All the Colors We Are wonderfully takes up the challenge to provide scientifically accurate explanations that are meaningful at their developmental stage. It is a welcome and needed contribution to children's literature about diversity issues.
