About the Book
Cocoa, tan, rose, and almond—people come in lots of shades.

Even in the same family there are differences. This thoughtful exploration of one of our most noticeable physical traits uses vibrant photographs of children and a short but astute text to inspire young children both to take notice and to look beyond the obvious.

"Filled with wonderful photographs. . . . A good introduction to racial and ethnic diversity."—School Library Journal

"Beautiful. . . . Message-driven but charming, this will enrich and spark discussions of diversity."—Booklist
