All the Colors We Are


by Katie Kissinger


Celebrate the essence of one way we are all special and different from one another-our skin color.  This book offers children (and maybe some adults) a simple, scientifically accurate explanation of 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 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 involved to help you extend the conversation with children.
