I Am Brown Synopsis

I am brown. I am beautiful. I am perfect. I designed this computer. I ran this race. I won this prize. I wrote this book.

A joyful celebration of the skin you're in--of being brown, of being amazing, of being you.

I Am Brown Press Reviews

This is a straightforward, unsubtle celebration of brown-skinned power, beauty, ability, and diversity. Clearly intended to counter the negative messages that dark-skinned children encounter early in their lives, the books bursts with love and energy, in the images and in the words. --Booklist

Brown children around the world celebrate their uniqueness and their ordinariness in this inclusive illustrated poem. This message of the normalcy and joy of being brown is upbeat and uplifting.--Kirkus Reviews

Beginning with a child sporting exuberant puffball pigtails and broadening into a community of brown-skinned children, the figures in this joyful picture book love the skin they're in..--Publishers Weekly
