I absolutely loved this book and wish I had it when I was growing up because brown skin was never celebrated. It is a joyous celebration of diversity and is beautifully illustrated. The message is very inspiring - the power of being yourself and the potential that every child has. It is a really special book and I hope everyone reads this book to children!
