About this item

Description



About the Book



A children's book about racial identity with a research-based approach to bolstering children against the effects of racial discrimination. Authors will be donating 100% of their proceeds to the ACLU and Los Angeles based youth programs serving BIPOC children.



Book Synopsis



For me, brown is more than feeling proud.
It's the color I see when I see
me.

Zahra sees the world in vivid color. When she's happy, she feels a razzle-dazzle pink in her hands. When she's sad, she feels a deep blue behind her eyes. But she isn't quite sure how to feel about the color of her skin. Kids at school tell her she is different, but her mother tells her to be proud! From a diverse team and based on extensive research, The Proudest Color is a timely, sensitive introduction to race, racism, and racial pride.



Review Quotes




"This text is a timely and welcome addition to early childhood classrooms that can be used in lessons on skin color, feelings, kindness, and how words can hurt others."
-Booklist

"This book provides a helpful jumping-off point for exploring facts, thoughts, and feelings behind racial identity, awareness, and pride. The attractive illustrations are full of personality in vignettes that flesh out the story's text...A useful tool for digging deeper"
-Kirkus Reviews
