Review by Allison Martin
A wonderful book for preschool and elementary age children, Brown
Like Me is a fun and inventive way to encourage young children in
multi-racial families to take pride in themselves and their appearance.
The little girl, Noelle, is an African American adoptee raised in a Caucasian
family. She identifies the color of brown in everything around her - brown
leaves, brown sand, brown eyes, and brown skin - ending with the words,
"I am strong brown." It is easy to reinforce this concept by
finding brown with your child in their everyday world. The accompanying
pictures are very appealing for both children and adults. Share this book
with your child - it will speak right to their heart, and yours.
