Hi Meltingpot Readers,
I think you all know I’m working on a book about colorism in families and right now I’m in the research phase. That means I’m deep diving into all thing colorism related, specifically how colorism manifests in African-American families (I’ll be moving on to colorism in Latino families next.). So, imagine my great delight in stumbling upon this wonderful children’s book called, Same Difference by Calida Garcia Rawles. The book is about two little brown cousins, one dark and one light, who learn a positive lesson about color differences. The story is told in verse and is simple but sweet and the illustrations are lovely. But don’t take my word for it. You can watch the author read the book to a group of preschoolers in this video. Enjoy!
