All the Colors of the Earth -- Sheila Hamanaka - Paperback

Celebrate the colors of children and the colors of love--not black or white or yellow or red, but roaring brown, whispering gold, tinkling pink, and more.

Sheila Hamanaka's All the Colors of the Earth is a classic to share alongside such favorites as We're Different, We're the Same, All Are Welcome, and The World Needs More Purple People.

This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the beauty of diversity to the fullest through engaging, rhyming text, commented Charnaie Gordon in her Brightly review. All the Colors of the Earth would be a wonderful book to use in multicultural classrooms in schools.

How better to celebrate ethnic diversity than to look to children, the hope of the future? This glorious picture book does just that.--Booklist

A poetic picture book and an exemplary work of art. The simple text describes children's skin tones and hair in terms of natural phenomena and then describes love for these children with rich colors and flavors. A celebration of diversity. --School Library Journal
