What to Expect: Diversity, Inclusion, Color, Joy
Morgan is a girl of color – and she LOVES colors! She’s smart enough to know that it’s the kaleidoscope of many wonderful colors that makes the world an interesting and joyful place to live. From the golden-brown of her skin to the peachy cream of her best friend’s skin, the bright yellow sun, the tall green grass, and her vivid orange lollipop, Morgan shares the colors that fill her with emotion and bring her world to life.
Color has come to be loaded with meaning in modern society, but A Girl of Color reminds us that color can be as much about joy and warmth as it is about politics. Morgan’s enthusiasm as she shares her favorite colors with readers is infectious. At the same time, her acceptance of all colors as equally wonderful offers a message of hope and positivity that encourages inclusion and diversity. The simple line drawings burst with vivid colors, inviting readers to think about the beautiful colors that make up their own worlds.
A Girl of Color is a simple, hopeful, happy celebration of color, perfect for teaching young readers the importance of diversity and inclusion.
