Description


Celebrating all the beautiful browns in one child’s colorful family
 
Mama’s brown is chocolate, clear, dark, and sweet. Daddy’s brown is autumn leaf, or like a field of wheat. Granny’s brown is like honey, and Papa’s like caramel. In this loving and lovely ode to the color brown, a boy describes the many beautiful hues of his family, including his own—gingerbread.

**STARRED REVIEW**
"A timely book to combat stereotypes and encourage the celebration of skin colors of Black and brown people."
— Kirkus

"Children will love hearing familiar words such as cinnamon, chocolate, gingerbread, and copper to describe the family. As many children engage in tough discussions pertaining to racial differences in the early grades, the inviting language in this work is sure to pique the interest of young readers."
 
— Booklist

"This book provides a view of skin tone that celebrates a multitude of hues while serving as a subtle, effective refutation of the idea that being family means looking the same."
— Publishers Weekly
