If you want to know who I am, you have got to come inside and open your heart way wide.Celebrating all that makes us unique and different, Skin Again offers new ways to talk about race and identity.

Learning to cherish those treasures, to be all we imagine ourselves to be, makes us free.This award-winning book, with its myriad of faces, introduces a strong message of loving yourself and others that will appeal to parents of our youngest readers.
