Synopsis

Racism The Skin I'm in by Pat Thomas

This book spells out in simple terms why people may feel threatened by racial differences, what it feels like to be bullied because your skin is a different colour and why it hurts everyone to judge people by their skin or culture. It will encourage positive acceptance and openess about differences and suggest ways for children to celebrate their own cultural heritage without belittling someone else's. With beautiful artwork by Lesley Harker.

Reviews
