Overview

My name is Lena and I am seven. I am the color of cinnamon. Mom says she could eat me up. Lena is going to paint a picture of herself. She wants to use brown paint for her skin. But when Lena and her mother take a walk through their neighborhood, Lena sees that there are many different shades and tones of brown. Seen from an artist's point of view, skin colors are subtle, varied--and cause for celebration Karen Katz created this book for her daughter, Lena, whom she and her husband adopted from Guatemala six years ago.
