A book for all babies and toddlers to celebrate the skin they are in.

People come in a rainbow of beautiful colours. A little girl looks around her and sees that some people are blue, some are green, some are red… the world is a rainbow and Violet herself is a wonderful mixture of her mom and dad. Her mom is red, her dad is blue, and, as the little girl proudly announces: "I am Violet!" (From Second Story Press)
