"The Colors of Us"

"I am the color of cinnamon. Mom says she could eat me up," says Lena, whose artist mother teaches her about the beauty and sweetness of all people in this winning tale by author and illustrator Karen Katz (whose own daughter was adopted from Guatemala). The Color of Us is a beautifully drawn book  that celebrates diversity as Lena learns that her own relatives and friends aren’t just brown — they come in delicious shades of tans (like honey), deep browns (like chocolate cupcakes), and pinks (like peaches).
