    Published by Redleaf Press 2015 Teacher's Choice free sample chapter

    Celebrate the essence of one way we are all special and different from one another—our skin color! Winner of the 2015 Learning Magazine Teacher's Choice Award for Children's Books, this book offers children a simple, scientifically accurate explanation about how our skin color is determined by our ancestors, the sun, and melanin. It's also filled with photographs that capture the beautiful variety of skin tones. Reading this book frees children from the myths and stereotypes associated with skin color and helps them build positive identities as they accept, understand, and value our rich and diverse world. Unique activity ideas are included to help you extend the conversation with children.
