"Brown children around the world celebrate their uniqueness and their ordinariness in this inclusive illustrated poem.”
Beginning with a child sporting exuberant puffball pigtails and broadening into a community of brown-skinned children, the figures in this joyful picture book love the skin they're in.
The figures portrayed―in many modes of dress, including a business suit, a saree, and a salwar and a kameez―know that they exemplify love and friendship.
Themes: diversity, love, languages, beauty.
