So, at the library yesterday we picked up:
by Michael Tyler
illustrated by David Lee Csicsko
This book celebrates the uniqueness of every skin tone, and with its fun rhyming text, is a very baby and toddler friendly way to talk about differences in people as well as acceptance.
After we read The Skin You Live In, we looked at the pictures in a few books that show children of many different races and colors. We talked about their skin tones being dark, light, or somewhere in between.

We also took some time to reflect on our little project. When I asked her what was in her picture she said, "Look at my beautiful picture. It has people of different kinds of colors of skin."
I couldn't have said it better myself baby bookworm. It is beautiful.
I hope everyone got a chance to celebrate differences and diversity yesterday!
