I Am Brown
Brown-skinned children around the world laugh, love and play together in this infectiously joyful book.
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.
