Tan to Tamarind: Poems About the Color Brown

Have you ever thought of how special and valuable the color brown is? Well, Malathi Michelle Iyengar did! Tan to Tamarind Poems About the Color Brown is Children's Book Press recent release! The poems found in this book will be a delight to read aloud and a treat for anyone with an appreciation of juicy, extraordinary words. The poems, along with the illustrations created by Jamel Akib explores the different spectrum and beauty of the color brown from a cup of cafe con leche to maples leaves in the fall. But of all the things that this book offers to the reader, the strongest and most important message is that no matter what your skin tone, each is unique and beautiful.

I added this book to my Amazon wish list!

We just had our Día de los niños celebration today, and I posted about it here: http://snapshotsofmrsv.blogspot.com/2009/05/dia-de-los-ninos-celebration.html

I remembered that you had asked me about how we did our celebration before, but I did not know a lot about it yet since it was my first year.
