Praise

“This is the book I want to give to my future daughter, this is the book I want to read to her before bedtime on the days that have brought us tears. In a world that regularly attempts to assert that darker skin, that brown skin, isn’t worthy, this particular read is endearing and lovingly ready to be a contender to such attitudes.” —Black Nerd Problems

“Warm images of children and loving adults in gold and dark browns hues complement the rhyming, poetic text, which is set in a large type that emulates hand printing. Perfect for responding to or preventing the feelings of inadequacy that too often plague brown-skinned children, this book begs to be shared as a read-aloud with cuddles. Soul food.” — Kirkus Reviews

“When a brown-skinned child proclaims that their skin color is pink, their mother rejoins with a rhyming poem that celebrates the beauty of brown in myriad forms. (T)he text… provides a creative and uplifting celebration of brownness. Warm digital spreads by Akem, in her picture book debut, extend the poem’s messages with stippled, textured digital backgrounds in wide-ranging shades of brown.”— Publishers Weekly
