About " My BlacK"

Additional Information

My Black is a charming book for young readers (4-8 year olds) that addresses the sensitive and sometime divisive issues of beauty and identity. It has a lyrical, upbeat air that begs to be read aloud and offers an engaging rhyme pattern for young children. Vivid illustrations capture the spirit and innocence of Alex and Aven, two brothers who find themselves at odds with each other over their skin complexion differences. With the help of their loving parents, the boys soon realize that their bond is deeper than what they see and our differences are what make us beautiful. My Black teaches children about melanin and the beauty of black skin and how we come in many different shades.
