About the Author
Karen Katz has written and illustrated many books for children, including Can You Say Peace, My First Ramadan, Counting Kisses and Where is Baby's Belly Button. Long inspired by folk art from around the world, she was inspired to write her first book, Over the Moon, when she and her husband adopted their daughter from Guatemala, and she wanted to tell the story of welcoming Lena into their lives. Katz loves to paint and experiment with texture, color, collage and pattern. Besides an author and illustrator, she has been a costume designer, quilt maker, fabric artist and graphic designer. Katz and her family divide their time between New York City and Saugerties, New York.

A child of color tells mom that brown is brown while mixing paint for a portrait. Mom says there are all shades of brown and takes child on a neighborhood excursion to pay attention to all the beautiful shades of brown there are. Child gets the skin tone right in paintings of all the neighborhood family and friends. Pictures are great and my child asks to read it.
However, as a parent of brown children who have developed negative feelings about their skin color, I am tremendously thankful for this book. Making the skin tones associated with something delicious and therefore positive helped my children view themselves more positively.
