Item Description...
Colors Come from God . . . Just Like Me! is an excellent book for fostering a child's racial self-esteem. The story is told by an African American girl who tells of the many things God created and their beauty in the diversity of colors God gave them. A young girl talks about the many things God created--and their colors. Each section ends with the affirmation "And God made me a beautiful brown!" Developed to help Forche's grandchild deal with the hurtful words spoken in a daycare center, the book's purpose is to help African American children develop a healthy racial self-esteem as they face situations and people who reject them because of their skin color.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautiful book for a girl  Feb 17, 2007
I bought this book for my son, but it focuses on a girl throughout. If I had a daughter, it would be great. As the title has God in it, it is very bible and religion oriented which might not be for some people. I just wish I had realized that it wouldn't have drawings of girls and boys. Doesn't really get the message I wanted to convey across to my son.
Adding Color Adds Beauty  Feb 10, 2003
I love this book. My favorite uncle used to say that all people are God's masterpieces because God sometimes mixes colors to make bonus colors and more beautiful people. "God picked out our colors," this very astute and loving man used to say. "He wanted more beauty for the world so He was always thinking up more beautiful colors to add to it."

This book affirms that sentiment; this book is a very good reflection on diversity, individuality and being human. Three cheers for this book!

Pretty Colors  Aug 6, 2001
I bought this book for my two youngest grandchildren who are 2 and 4. My daughter said that they loved it. There is so much out there to destroy a child's self-esteem, that it is nice to find a book that will affirm it for them. I hope they get years of enjoyment from this book.
The most perfect book in my child's library  Aug 31, 2000
As a parent in a transracial adoption, I am continually frustrated by the anorexic selection of role models for my African-American child in children's literature. I try to surround my child with deafening messages of self-love and self-worth and celebrate the beautiful brown hue! This book takes passages of the bible and translates it into self-empowering beliefs for a child of any color. The illustrations are warm and well-done, the text is simple, but poetic. The book itself is sturdy and can take a beating. I adore this book. It cost a little more than most other children's books, but it's well worth it!
Beautiful Black Children  Apr 14, 2000
As I read COLORS COME FROM GOD JUST LIKE ME I wished that I had a book like this growing up. Many Black Children are exposed daily to sterotypes and negative images (from society and the media) regarding their veil (skin tone) and because of this they begin to view their veil as inferior. This book focuses on the many WONDERFUL colors God gave the world including the MANY skin tones that Blacks posess. As I read this story to my daughter I hope she recieves the same message I obtained, my physical attributes are not inferior, I am beautiful because God created me.
