A positive and affirming look at skin color, from an artist's perspective.

Seven-year-old Lena is going to paint a picture of herself. She wants to use brown paint for her skin. But when she and her mother take a walk through the neighborhood, Lena learns that brown comes in many different shades.

Through the eyes of a little girl who begins to see her familiar world in a new way, this book celebrates the differences and similarities that connect all people.

Karen Katz created this book for her daughter, Lena, whom she and her husband adopted from Guatemala six years ago.

Karen Katz has written and illustrated many books for children, including Can You Say Peace, My First Ramadan, Counting Kisses and Where is Baby's Belly Button. Long inspired by folk art from around the world, she was inspired to write her first book, Over the Moon, when she and her husband adopted their daughter from Guatemala, and she wanted to tell the story of welcoming Lena into their lives. Katz loves to paint and experiment with texture, color, collage and pattern.

The Colors of Us book. Seven-year-old Lena and her mother observe the variations in the color of their friends' skin, viewed in terms of foods and things found in nature. By the author of Over the Moon: An Adoption Tale. Something about me I have always been interested in folk art from around the world: Indian miniatures, Mexican ceramics, fabrics, Chagall, Matisse, children’s art, and promitive painting, and I love to paint and experiment with pattern, texture, collage and color. In The Colors of Us Karen Katz writes and illustrates a beautiful tale about the colors found in the diaspora. The main character, Lena, and her Mom, walk throughout their neighborhood appreciating the different shades that people can come in. Some may be thrown by the comparisons to foods and everyday things like leaves, but I think Katz is trying to draw upon images that are completely relatable, regardless of your ethnic, social and economic background.

Karen Katz has succeeded in presenting a colorful and creative book that describes the many beautiful shades of skin tone in our society. Thanks Karen Katz for writing and illurtating a great book. We hope more iwll follow. She teaches her daughter, Lena, that there are many shades of brown. They walk through their neighborhood, using color tones and food items to make tasteful distinctions. After Lena mixes her paint colors to match the subtle hues and paint each person, she exclaims, "Look Mom, the colors of us!" This has been a wonderful book for my 2 year old son to explore the differences in races as we await the adoption of our baby from China.

Talk about The Colors of Us

Great book for young kids. My six year old had a lot of questions about why some kids at her school are diffent colors than her. She decided she perfered people who look like her. I bought a few books that talk about how everyone is different and that's okay. This was my favorite. I talks about people who are diffent shades of brown and labels them as things like "peachy tan" "cocoa brown" " chocolate brown" as well as several other browns. It help guide some positive discussion on how we are all different and that is a good thing. She enjoyed the book.

Why I like it:
A child of color tells mom that brown is brown while mixing paint for a portrait. Mom says there are all shades of brown and takes child on a neighborhood excursion to pay attention to all the beautiful shades of brown there are. Child gets the skin tone right in paintings of all the neighborhood family and friends. Pictures are great and my child asks to read it.

Such a good book! The story is about a girl taking a walk through her neighborhood and noticing the colors of everyone. I read this to my kindergartners (it would be appropriate for any age, the writing would lend to a descriptive writing lesson) and they loved how most skin colors were described with food terms. I introduced multicultural crayons to them afterward and they loved it.

Really liked this book. Bought it for my 5 year old granddaughter who loves to paint. The story is well written and illustrations are terrific. We are going to mix red, yellow, black and white paint next week and make various brown faces.

I understand the comments about stereotyping (ie: Mr. Kashmir and the Italian pizza maker).

However, as a parent of brown children who have developed negative feelings about their skin color, I am tremendously thankful for this book. Making the skin tones associated with something delicious and therefore positive helped my children view themselves more positively.

This book is a good addition to the repertoire of books talking about race. I would pull this book out if there’s any negative connotations coming up in children’s language about skin colors, because this book frames skin colors in comparison to delicious caramel or chocolate or peach something-or-other.

I live in a super white bread area, so I try to buy books and toys that celebrate and normalize diversity. I love this book because it shows the gorgeous variety of tones our skin can be. My kids and I like to think about who we know that matches each skin color shown. Our differences are what make up beautiful!
I bought this to read with my three year old after she started noticing the differences in people's skin. It has a nice cadence and is very readable. My daughter loved seeing all the pretty pictures and names/shades of skin tones, and it opened a conversation about what tones matched us and some people we know.
