I am Brown by Askok Banker
Written by Ashok Banker and beautifully illustrated by Sandhya Prabhat, this book focusses on a celebration of race - an appreciation of the skin you're in. 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.
Each page features a lovely illustration helping to showcase the diversity of modern cultures and societies. This is a heartwarming and empowering book of self-love and acceptance. An uplifting children's book with a powerful message that you can be anything you want to be.
