Cocoa, tan, rose, and almond—people come in lots of shades, even in the same family.
A celebration of the diversity of everyday life, this exploration of one of our most noticeable physical traits pairs simple text with vibrant photographs.  At school, at the beach, and in the city, diverse groups of children invite young readers both to take notice and to look beyond the obvious.
Combining lively action shots and candid portraits, Shelley Rotner's photographs showcase a wide variety of kids and families—many shades, and many bright smiles. 
For even younger readers, this title has also been adapted as a board book, All Kinds of People.
