It's never too early to start talking about race and differences in skin color. If we don't talk about racial differences, children will form their own bias and racism can take root. Read more about it in this article from Yale experts.
This quiet book page was designed to open up dialogue and start discussion. It teaches about melanin and why our skin colors are unique. It also prompts children to think of people they know or book characters who have different skin colors. Lift the hands to reveal the world!
