Affirms identity as involving outward appearance, while emphasizing that to really know a person means to get to what is inside them.

HARPERCOLL
The skin I'm in is just a covering. It cannot tell my story. The skin I'm in is just a covering. 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. Race matters, but only so much-what's most important is who we are on the inside. Looking beyond skin, going straight to the heart, we find in each other the treasures stored down deep. Learning to cherish those treasures, to be all we imagine ourselves to be, makes us free. Skin Again celebrates this freedom.

Baker
& Taylor

Celebrates people's diversity, discusses race, and examines identity through vibrant illustrations and simple rhyming tales that encourage self-awareness and pride in one's self.

From the brilliant theorist and academic bell hooks comes a story for children about how their skin - and its colour - is just a covering for who they really are. An excellent way of introducing multiracial topics to children.
