Praise for What Does Brown Mean to You?

"This vibrant, positive narrative follows a brown-skinned boy through his day as he celebrates the many shades of brown in his family and world. . . with curiosity, energy, and joy. . . A welcome addition to all collections promoting positive skin tone discussions and leading to personal explorations of the title's question. Provocative and generous." --School Library Journal

"Rooted in appreciation of familial love, the natural world, and creativity, this rhyming day-in-the-life story of a young boy reads like a gentle embrace. Blocky unlined pencil and digital art in a cut-paper style appears against a white background. . . Images of making, sharing, and gratitude prove emblematic of the word, as the narrator paints, cooks, and dines with family . . . It's a simple, positive picture book affirmation that celebrates brown across ages, stages, and shades." --Publishers Weekly

"There is repetition and rhyme throughout this upbeat, encouraging tale as Benny describes how the color brown appears throughout his daily activities and the emotions that arise. Many scenes evoke readers' senses as the boy and his family explore what brown means to them. Simple illustrations, created with pencil and finished digitally, in a neutral palette complement the text. An affirming celebration of being brown." --Kirkus Reviews
