About the Author

Akem is an illustrator and writer who lives in Vancouver, BC. This is her first picture book.

Reviews

"Warm images of children and loving adults in gold and dark browns hues complement the rhyming, poetic text, which is set in a large type that emulates hand printing. Perfect for responding to or preventing the feelings of inadequacy that too often plague brown-skinned children, this book begs to be shared as a read-aloud with cuddles. Soul food." -- Kirkus Reviews

"When a brown-skinned child proclaims that their skin color is pink, their mother rejoins with a rhyming poem that celebrates the beauty of brown in myriad forms. (T)he text... provides a creative and uplifting celebration of brownness. Warm digital spreads by Akem, in her picture book debut, extend the poem's messages with stippled, textured digital backgrounds in wide-ranging shades of brown."-- Publishers Weekly
