Description: The boy is teased for looking different than the other kids. His skin is darker, his hair curlier. He tells his mother he wishes he could be more like everyone else. And she helps him to see how beautiful he really, truly is.
For years before they both achieved acclaim in their respective professions, good friends Taye Diggs and Shane W. Evans wanted to collaborate on Chocolate Me!, a book based on experiences of feeling different and trying to fit in as kids. Now, both men are fathers and see more than ever the need for a picture book that encourages all people, especially kids, to love themselves. (40 pgs) Ages 4 +
Ashay says, “This is truly an adorable book. It tells a great story of self -love and self acceptance. It also touches on topics of name calling and other silly taunts that poke fun at skin color that can be hurtful. The best line in the story is “Look in the mirror and love what you see!” I love this book and the chocolate cupcakes. We needed a book like this for our little chocolate boys. A dynamic duo Shane Evans and Taye Diggs .... continue the series please. Must have for the classroom and library."
