About Wonderfully, Marvelously Brown

A joyously affirming rhyming picture book that follows a young boy on an adventure to find and celebrate all shades of brown—including you and me!

Everywhere that I go
I’m searching to see
something wonderfully, marvelously
brown—just like me!

From new school desks to freckles and moles, from fresh pastries to cedar canoes, brown is everywhere around us. It's a color that describes the giant California redwoods and the Grand Canyon walls, busy beavers building dams and great horned owls hoo-hooing. 

Illustrated by Pura Belpré Honor Award artist Sara Palacios, Wonderfully, Marvelously Brown takes kids on a tour of the U.S. to seek and find all the brilliant and beautiful shades of brownfrom ivory to ebonythat God used in creation, including humans! Through the rhythmic text and repeating refrain, children of all races, ages, and abilities will be encouraged to love the skin they're in as they observe how it's reflected in their communities and the world around them.
