This is a poem about our skin.
No matter what our colors may be on the outside --brown, black, red, yellow, white -- the colors inside our skins are all the same. This poem for children speaks of how unimportant skin color is. It says friendship and love are important.
Written in language especially for the young and illustrated with funny, colorful, provocative pictures, the poem poses an important question for all of us: do we like others for who they are or because of the way they look?
