The Colors of Us

On a recent trip to the library, we checked out the book The Colors of Us by Karen Katz.  The first page of the book reads, "My name is Lena, and I am seven. Mom says I am the color of cinnamon.  Mom says she could eat me up."  How cute is that?  Peacock has decided that she is chocolate brown like birthday cupcakes! I recommend this book for all kids, but particularly for kids who are adopted and might not be the same color as the rest of their family.  It's a great way to help kids learn that all colors are beautiful in their own, special way.  I think we'll be adding this book to our family library!!

Pin It!
