Read in February, 2010

What a great book for younger children about skin color and understanding what is most important is what is on the inside. While some of Rotner's shades don't seem to actually match the children's different skin tones, the message in this picture book comes across beautifully. This is a must have book for preschool and kindergarten teachers wanting to teach/reinforce that skin color doesn't make the person.
