You Are My Favorite Color

When you ask me why your skin is brown,rnI will tell you that you are my favorite color.rnI will say that your skin was decided long, long ago.rnTime was just waiting for you.rn rnSo begins a mother’s celebration of her children’s brown skin, told through warm and vivid poetry. With sweeping descriptions of what brown skin means—it is the brawny bear whose paws know the ground of its home, the sequoia tree that reaches up and touches the sun, the glossy shell of roasted chestnuts—this is a book that empowers as it embraces, and that reminds young readers that they have shades of color that only they can discover and express.
