All the Colors of the Earth (Mulberry Books) by Sheila Hamanaka - I like these books because they use color tones--for example pumpkin colored skin and the kids can do a self protrait of the color they think their skin is. We talk about melanin and how it makes some colors darker than others and that we may look different on the outside, but the inside we are the same--heart, feelings, etc

The Colors of Us --- Given to us by a dear friend...I would highly recommend this to classrooms and adoptive families.
Through a little girl's quest to paint a picture of herself, Lena and her mother take a walk through their neighborhood to understand that skin color comes in all sorts of shades. As Lena and her mother compare each person's skin color to food such as honey, cinnamon and more, diversity is put in a perspective even small children can grasp. The Colors of Us by Karen Katz

This is a great book to use to teach kids about different skin colors and uniqueness. This would be a good book to use to being a uit or lesson on mulitculturalism.
The Colors of Us by Karen Katz was published in 1999. This multi-cultural book takes us through a day with Lena who is trying to draw a picture of herself, she and her Mom take a walk through their neighborhood and notice that there are many shades and tones of brown. This book could be used for children to compare the colors of their skin and to expand vocabulary.
This is one of the books I use to teach kids about different skin colors and creating "self-portraits".
Through a beautifully illustrated story, The Colors of Us explains that while we all look different, we all share many of the same qualities. The storybook’s main character, Lena, discovers that she and her friends and neighbors all have different yet beautiful skin colors. Author Karen Katz wrote The Colors of Us as an appreciation of her adopted Guatemalan daughter and the diversity that surrounds them.
The Color of Us by Karen Katz. This is a fiction book about a colored girl who wants to paint herself. Lena wants to use the color brown to represent her ethnicity. When her and her mom go for a stroll through their neighborhood and she realizes there are many different skin colors of brown. She begins to see the world differently and also embraces the diversity there is her world. This book is good for identity roles because it shows uniqueness but diversity in Lena's life.
