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

This picture-led book is a good introduction to the issue of racism; what it means to be the victim or the perpetrator, how subtle racism can be, and how unfair it is to judge someone by the colour of their skin. A useful introduction to the topic, particularly for classroom use. Evening Echo The pictures in [this volume], innocent, bright and sympathetic, are well realised, and there are instructions for teachers and parents on the use of the book. Books for Keeps The book explores the issue of racism and deals with children's concerns in a sensitive and reassuring way. Child Education
