Product Details

Praise

With plenty of sentimental books about belonging available, a fun angle on the ties that bind members of the human family is welcome…Following a light-skinned mother and her three children (who share their father’s brown skin), Tobia (Baby’s Got the Blues) creates an expansive, multicultural cast of urbanites enjoying themselves at a park, at the public pool, and at a boisterous block party. It’s freewheeling fun—a perfect book for the months when we all try to wear as little as possible.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The combination of lovingly humorous and detailed mixed-media illustrations and infectious rhymes will cause little ones and their families to pore over this book again and again.
—Kirkus Reviews

Happy in Our Skin paints a picture of an ideal world that recognizes the value of diversity and shuns color blindness—a positive message for ears of every age and color.
—Booklist Online

A delightful feel-good story.
—School Library Journal
