A photo-rich exploration of the many different colors people come wrapped in.  With limited text, it captures the shades of people from home to school to the playground to the bigger world around us. 

This book would be an excellent addition to a classroom library and a great read-aloud and discussion book for an early-years multicultural unit to begin teaching children about respect and appreciation for diversity.
