Description


Celebrate the colors of children and the colors of love—not black or white or yellow or red, but roaring brown, whispering gold, tinkling pink, and more.

Sheila Hamanaka's All the Colors of the Earth is a book to share alongside such titles as We're Different, We're the Same and All Are Welcome. Included in Brightly's list of recommended diverse poetry picture books for kids, this beautifully illustrated book "celebrates the beauty of diversity to the fullest through engaging, rhyming text," commented Charnaie Gordon in her Brightly review. All the Colors of the Earth "would be a wonderful book to use in multicultural classrooms in schools."

"How better to celebrate ethnic diversity than to look to children, the hope of the future? This glorious picture book does just that."—Booklist

"A poetic picture book and an exemplary work of art. The simple text describes children's skin tones and hair in terms of natural phenomena and then describes love for these children with rich colors and flavors. A celebration of diversity." —School Library Journal

Praise For…


"With her lyrical text and splendid oil paintings, Hamanaka offers a hymn to children everywhere... Extraordinary, light-filled paintings accompany the single curving line of text on each page... These joyful illustrations amply celebrate the richness and diversity of the world's ethnic heritages."
