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