    One thought on “Happy in Our Skin”

    1. Perfect book to teach kids about diversity The illustrations are awesome fun little details hidden on every page It not only features kids with different skin colors, but also shows kids with glasses, and freckles, and unibrows, wheelchairs, and birth marks I was so pleased to see all of this, I didn t notice until I was half way through that the main family has two mommies one black and one white I keep flipping through this to find things I didn t notice on my first three reads So I guess thi [...]

    2. This title is a hardback picture book that describes all the different types of people I would consider this book progressive and very positive with regards to diversity It offers illustrations of many races and ethnicities all presented in a positive, appropriate manner My only concern is that many of the skin colors are described using food words, such as cocoa brown , cinnamon , honey and peaches and cream These descriptions have often been accused of being dehumanizing to the person being de [...]

    3. Age Infant KindergartenFamily All inclusiveSimple, rhyming text uses our skin to describe how people grow, how we share similar experiences, and celebrates our differences I felt hesitant about the overarching generalization we get a tan when it s sunny But the illustrations are full of fun detail and will have kids engrossed in the children and families.

    4. The rhyme doesn t always hang together, and it s pretty bare bones as an informative text BUT it s super adorable and inclusive Recommended for very young kiddos who are curious about human differences.

    5. The poetry in the text and illustrations affirms us that all skin color is beautiful The illustrations display an excellent example of anti bias and anti racist relationships showing all genders, faiths, and family make ups.

    6. As a Fran Manushkin fan I expected to like this, and found it exceeded my hopes Written in rhyming text with expressive and figurative language that is accessible even to the very young The range of individuals, families, and scenes portrayed are diverse and inclusive It is both specific to a young child s emerging self awareness and body concepts, while expanding the view of a wider world and a child s place in it.

This book starts off by showing babies of all different skin colors so sweet and innocent As the kids grow, their skin grows too Skin can get scabs, have freckles, and birthmarks along with a lot of other different features Everyone has skin, but no one has the same skin The message of this story is to be you in this wonderful world, and be happy in your own skin This is great for young children to learn about diversity and how not everyone is the same on the outside, and that s okay.

    11. This book celebrates diversity in such a positive way, which should be seen in a happy way There is much representation of various ethnic racial mothers, father, children, and other family and friends and the beauty of it all Although subtle or maybe not , I liked the subtleness of the child and his her cut on their leg signifying that although everyone is different, we are all the same within human A good read.

    18. Happy in Our Skin, by Fran ManushkinRationaleI really enjoyed Happy in Our Skin and believe it is perfect for inclusion in a diversity text set, but not because it features one specific ethnicity, religion, sex, or ability Instead, Happy in Our Skinis wonderful because it both celebrates diversity and explains how we are all connected This would be the perfect opening book for a diversity text set, because its illustrations are populated with so many different perspectives of people and how they [...]

This would be the perfect book to pair with Shades of People and it s geared toward that age of audience pre school and below It s also a great starting off point for talking about how we all look different While there isn t exactly a plot to the story, the illustrations seem to tie the text to something like one The loose plot of the illustrations follows a biracial family around their city as they encounter other people The families shown in the book are a mix of colors, religions, parents, an [...]

    23. Delightful rhyming text tells the reader what a wonderful thing our skin is and what it does We are all born with skin it keeps our insides in Skin grows as we grow and can heal itself when we get hurt Everyone has different skin some dark, some light, some in between, some are freckled, some have birthmarks, some have dimples Yes, we all have skin, but nobody is you You are one of a kind and your fingerprints, too What a sweet and positive book I like that the author made the focus of skin be w [...]
