    I m really torn on how to rate this book On the one hand, I get what it s trying to do and like many reviewers I love how the author referred to people coming in different shades rather than colors The book shows children playing in various scenarios, and talks about how people come in cocoa, rose, almond, etc That s nice.One the other hand, this book has made my son obsessed with skin color It s had the complete opposite effect from what I was hoping for Because the book is busy labeling the different shades, he s now interpreted that to mean it s important to label shades of skin Kids learn what s important by watching us, and by reading this book to him I ve just essentially told him labeling skin color is important Holy shit We almost immediately stopped reading the actual text to him and instead talked about what the kids are doing, asked him to find a child with glasses, a barrette, and so on Even so, he hasn t forgotten and will point to a child and ask if that one is coffee It took something he hadn t really rem...

    I thought this book was amazing I really liked that the author reffered to skin in shades instead of color Throughout this book there are very few but meaningful words The pictures used in the book are of real people These kids of young ages are seen doing different activities like playing in the sand or just with their families or friends The author shows throughout the book that one can t judge someone by the shade of their skin because she shows different kinds of families that may have adopted their children or so on Rotner makes it clear that a shade is just a wrapping or layer of your body but that there is so much inside I would recommend this book to parents and teachers in order to open up the topic of race to children who do see the differences I would use it with younger students so as to begin thinking and realizing that we are all still p...

    Opening lines Have you noticed that people come in many different shades Not colors, exactly, but shades I LOVE this approach to talking with children about the different levels of melanin in our skin.

    The book Shades of People is a perfect example of putting diversity in simplistic terms especially for younger children The book uses shades to describe how different people are instead of using color There are no cultural references in this book, the images shown are of people who come from different backgrounds but there are no implications of a specific culture In reviewing the book I found kids that looked like they came from Latino, Asian, European and everything else that falls in between What I did notice that the book did not make any specific implications if the kids were from Mexico, China, Russia etc This is great because the book is not meant to show kids how someone from Mexico might look rather it is to show kids how different everyone looks no matter where they come from, even when you do not know The book does a great job in showing diversity with in the shades of the different kids used There is a variety of gender and of hair and eye color Some kids have freckles while others have missing teeth There is no one lens that this boo...

    Shades of People is a heart warming book written by Shelley Rotner with photographs by Sheila Kelly, about all of the different kinds of people in this world, how they are just shades, not necessarily different colors, and how you can t tell what somebody is like on the inside by what they look on the outside This is a book that every child needs to read Not necessarily younger children who don t really understand the concept of racism or different races in general, but for older children who are starting to realize that people look very different from one another This book teaches children that it s okay to get along with someone just because they look different from them Our skin is just our covering, like wrapping paper And, you can t tell what someone is like from the color of their skin is as true a line as was ever written The vocabulary is very basic, mentioning different shades like pink, rose, and almond, and there is only one sentence per page.Sheila s photographs are beautiful and happy featuring children of different shades playing with each other and smiling in the park, on the beach, in the city, and at school The photographs portray a sense of togetherness, love, and hope ...

    Author and photographer join forces again in this photographic essay on skin color Having previously tackled family members, feelings and faiths May Ways How Families Practice Their Beliefs and Religions, 2006, etc , they now showcase in full color many smiling, appealing, friendly, loving, creative, thoughtful, hugging, eye catching young ones The connection, rather than the difference, is that all these children are many different shades, not colors, exactly There s creamy, ivory, sandy and peach, coffee, cocoa, copper and tan And all of this is our covering, like wrapping paper The authors take care to state explicitly that you can t tell what someone is like from the color of their skin Children of many different ethnicities are here, sometimes in the same family It s a heartwarming effort that teachers and families can embrace and will doubtless find its way into many a curriculum on celebrating differen...

    This colorful children s book is a great read It talks about the different shades of peoples skin and where you go to see new shades For example, in the park, at school and in the city It also lists some different shades to help children expand their vocabulary such as copper and tan instead of brown or creamy and ivory instead of white The pictures in the book are actual photographs not drawings I think it was a great idea to use photographs of real children in this book it can help students see kids like them from around the world The authors Shelly Rotner and Sheila M Kelly are obviously a part of the group this book is about because it s about all people They also specialize in diversity books for children Lots of Moms and the A.D.D book for kids are a couple of their works I would use this book in my classroom to show the students that everyone is different and we don t have ...

    multicultural This is a very important and unique book to use to introduce children to the idea that there are many different shades of people The most important message in this book is that skin is just a covering and that you cannot tell what someone is like from the color of their skin This is a very important concept that young children need to understand Having them understand this at a young age through literature is vital because the older they get the harder it is for them to grasp the idea This book is full of photos from the first page to the very last of children who are all diffrent shades interacting The photos show the children participating in regular activities together such as playing on the playground and building sand castles on the beach There are not very many words in this book but the words that are in the book are special and very important This book is appropriate for childen as young as 4 to be introduced to even if they are not able to read to themselves this...

    Shades of People by Shelley Rotner, is a wonderful addition to any classroom This book, introduces children to people with a wide variety of differences This book features people with a wide variety of skin colors who are equally beautiful It also demonstrates that people can have different skin colors and still be in the same family.Shelley Rotner s book encourages dialogue about acceptance and diversity and after reading her biography I learned that, to create awareness about diversity was her goal when she writes her children s books.I would use this book in my classroom to teach awareness, about the...

    I wrote of Jess Hong s book Lovely that I couldn t decide whether I wanted a explicit message, or felt the understated depiction of diversity stood well enough alone For this book, I definitely wish the text which is already minimal were even less obtrusive mainly because I am not a big fan of assigning names to people s skin tones, wh...
