Rhyming text and illustrations celebrate being content with the skin in which one lives, whatever that skin might be. With the ease and simplicity of a nursery rhyme, this lively story delivers an important message of social acceptance to young readers. Themes associated with child development and social harmony, such as friendship, acceptance, self-esteem, and diversity are promoted in simple and straightforward prose. Vivid illustrations of children's activities for all cultures, such as swimming in the ocean, hugging, catching butterflies, and eating birthday cake are also provided. This delightful picturebook offers a wonderful venue through which parents and teachers can discuss important social concepts with their children.

Celebratory fun. Teaches acceptance without cramming it down your throat. Some of the rhymes don't make perfect sense, "It's not tall skin or short skin, or best in the sport skin..." Huh? But the point is, all skin is beautiful.
