Colors We Share (The)

Forget black and white or brown or yellow as descriptions of skin color. This is an amazing books with hundreds of face/shoulder portraits of human beings of all ages - each who has a unique color of their skin (carefully coded in terms of the Pantone color chart). The simple text explictly states the foolishness and injustice of thinking a person’s skin color tells us anything about that person. There is a mirror to check out our own faces. Even if there were no text, children would be fascinated by all the wondrous faces and the invitation to see if they can match thier own skin to any of the multiple shades of skin. The final lines of the book say "We all hae something different to offeer. And so our differences do not need to divide us. Togherer we can question old ideas, and think bigger.
