Editorial Reviews

Review

The pairing of text and dazzling artwork is flawless . . . transporting readers away from a mundane viewpoint and allowing them to appreciate a common spiritual identity. This wonderful book should be a first choice for all collections and is strongly recommended as a springboard for discussions about differences. — School Library Journal (starred review)

Lester presents the wealth of human difference as a treasure trove for discovery, and Barbour’s naïf-style spreads provide plenty of visual interest. — Publishers Weekly

LET’S TALK ABOUT RACE is an enlightening read with important concepts and ideas that even younger children can ponder. Barbour’s colorful paintings give visual expression to the rainbow of who w e all are. — Black Issues Book Review

"Lester's poignant picture book helps children learn, grow, discuss, and begin to create a future that resolves differences." — Children's Literature

From the Back Cover

I am a story.

So are you.

So is everyone.

Julius Lester says, "I write because our lives are stories. If enough of these stories are told, then perhaps we will begin to see that our lives are the same story. The differences are merely in the details." Now Mr. Lester shares his own story as he explores what makes each of us special. Karen Barbour's dramatic, vibrant paintings speak to the heart of Lester's unique vision, truly a celebration of all of us.
