Happy in Our Skin This joyful celebration of skin combines rhyming phrases and double-page spreads crowded with babies, toddlers and parents in urban settings such as parks, swimming pools, street parties and indoor spaces to demonstrate its wonderful attributes. As well as being a unifying physical trait, skin in all its subtle tones ('cocoa brown, cinnamon and honey gold') and distinguishing features (dimples, freckles, birthmarks, wrinkles) helps shape our unique identities and sense of self. Lauren Tobia's illustrations match the upbeat assertions of the text: there is warmth and gentle humour in her depiction of a happy diversity within groups - and within families, as she includes parents with different skin tones and from different racial backgrounds.
