Bright Eyes Brown Skin: In a charming picture book designed to build self-esteem, four African-American kindergartners enjoy their day together. As they draw with crayons, play games, eat their lunch, dress up, dance, and take a nap, they revel in each other’s company.
Meanwhile, the simple rhyming poem celebrates the beauty of “Chubby fingers, ticklish toes…a playful grin, a perfect nose…” In George Ford’s animated paintings, the happiness and confidence of the four friends shines through, and young readers will be glad to share in the fun.
A typical day in the life of preschooler at day care – from show and tell to naptime and story time – is depicted in this colorful paperback. Ages 2-6.
This book is wonderful to read. It tells of four friends who have bright eyes and brown skin. Ultimately this book is great to share with younger children and for them to find reasons about themselves that they love as well.
Bright Eyes Brown Skin. This is a great work of literature in our collection of African-American children’s books.
