Skin Like Mine

  • Title: Skin Like Mine
  • Author: Latashia M. Perry
  • Illustrator: Bea Jackson
  • Publisher: Kids Like Mine LLC
  • Publication year: 2016
  • Brief Summary: From Amazon-“From the Creators of Hair Like Mine, Skin Like Mine, the second book in the Kids Like Mine Series, is a fun, easy-to- read for beginners as well as advanced readers. An entertaining yet creative way to address and celebrate diversity among young children.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I think this book could be used for young children (such as kindergarteners or 1st graders) in a school library. I also think this would work well in a public library. I think it’s important to teach children about positive self-image early on, and especially for diverse children as there hasn’t been enough coverage in this area.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – I liked the colorful illustrations and that with each page turn we see a wide variety of skin tones represented, and inclusion mentioned in this story.
