Summary: Brown-skinned mama, the color of chocolate milk and pumpkin pie. White-skineed daddy, not the color of milk or snow, but light with pinks and tiny tans. And their two children, the beautiful colors of both. For an all-American family, full of joy, warmth, and love.
My thoughts: I read it. I loved it. You should read it too. A great story about the beauty and love of mixed-race families. When it was first published in 1973, Black is Borwn is Tan featured the first interracial family in children’s books in the US.
