Synopsis

All the Colors We are / Todos Los Colores De Nuestra Piel The Story of How We Get Our Skin Color / La Historia De Por Que Tenemos Diferentes Colores De Piel by Katie Kissinger

All the Colors We Are/Todos los Colores de Nuestra Piel captures the essence of one way we are special and different from one another - skin colour! We are all shades of brown and tan, and this engaging book explains how all the colours we are come from our ancestors, the sun, and the pigment melanin. This twentieth anniversary edition features all new colourful photographs that showcase the beautiful diversity of skin colour. Engaging bilingual text (English/Spanish) offers children a simple, scientifically accurate explanation for how we get our skin colour and answers the what and why questions children love to ask. Unique activity ideas are included to extend learning about skin colour. Understanding melanin frees children from the myths and stereotypes associated with skin colour and helps celebrate our differences.

Reviews

An incredibly superb example of how to handle the topic of skin color with simple truth and dignity. Such a respectful tribute to the intellect of young children! Carol Brunson Day, early childhood education consultant
