My 4 year old loves this book. After purchasing many books on explaining race to children, this is the best I’ve found for 3-5 yr olds. It’s fun to read and explains the beauty in all shades of skin and loving yourself. Have bought for many friends with similar aged kids.

A beautiful and happy book about celebrating different skin colors. My kids smile and laugh as we read it. This book gave me new ideas about how to talk about the topic. One step towards making the world more accepting.
