"This is how we all begin: small and happy in our skin." Starting with a close-up of a baby being tickled by doting parents, this joyful celebration of human skin zooms out to show a lively urban neighbourhood filled with people of various ages, genders, abilities, religions, and (of course) skin colours. Young readers are treated to a rhyming run-down of all the things skin can do (such as itching, healing, and growing) before being refocused on the family from the beginning, now all tuckered out from a boisterous block party. For another upbeat look at human diversity, pick up George Shannon's One Family or Shelley Rotner's photo-illustrated Shades of People. Picture books newsletter September 2015.
