This book, not intended, seems like a great follow-up to “Shades of People”. It takes the idea of shades of skin to the next level through the eyes of an artistic child. A great next level book for Kinder through elementary-age children. Nearby friends and neighbors who are all different colors that bring up beautiful depictions of food such as butterscotch or pizza crust. Food is definitely a kid-friendly, easy-to-imagine comparison. And with all these vivid descriptions, the child narrator returns to her own canvas at the end of the day to paint all her friends and neighbors in all the colors of us.
