My favorite uncle who was a very astute man used to say, "God mixes and adds more colors so there are more colors to love. Birds, butterflies, flowers and peacocks have all these beautiful colors and God picked our colors for us as well. He wanted more beauty for the world, so He was always thinking up more beautiful colors to add to it."
I also recommend "David's Drawing," "Colors Come From God Just Like Me," "The Two Mrs. Gibsons," a book about a beautiful little girl whose mother is Japanese and her father is black and "How My Parents Learned to Eat," another delightful book about a bi-racial child and the two cultures she happily shares. This book deserves a place of honor! It is for everybody!
The book could have maintained an upbeat tone but still giving children assertiveness skills to respond to these intrusive comments in a way that makes them feel comfortable. This book and several others send the message: Your skin is beautiful! It's cool being biracial! This does not correspond to reality. Strangers and people your child knows will comment on your child's skin tone; that is not “cool”. Also, I really don't get the emphasis on the color of one's skin being linked to self esteem. I don't think white children are taught--Peach skin is beautiful! and I don't get this approach with kids of color.

me? ok, i'm just happy to have a book that features interracial relationships instead of whitemom with whitedad, blackmom with blackdad. My 3 year old has begun to note a difference and I wanted a fun way to talk about our unique family make-up. This has been it. We talk about what WE like at each page as well. (mom likes veggies, dad would go with those ribs or chicken, our girls like artichoke and chicken. Mama likes most animals, but daddy prefers dogs, our little girls like them all.)
another thing I really like is that the mothers hair is worn naturally. My 3 year old knows that some people have straight hair and some curly, but lately she has observed that MOST people (black or white) have straight hair (perm, wig, ect.) and less people have curly. I believe very strongly in encouraging an acceptance of personal beauty, this book allows for that.
