Seller's Description:

From the publisher, "Izzy_ã_s favorite place to be is in Mama_ã_s arms_ã”skin to skin, safe and warm. One night, cuddled up on Mama_ã_s lap, Izzy notices something she_ã_s never noticed before: her skin is the color of chocolate, but Mama_ã_s skin is the color of sand. When Izzy realizes she_ã_s different from Mama in other ways, too, she feels sad and confused. She wants to be beautiful like Mama! But Mama addresses Izzy_ã_s disappointment with a gentle, loving refrain:Ô_You_ã_re part of me, and I_ã_m part of you. I_ã_m beautiful like me, and you_ã_re beautiful like you.Ô_Finding lessons from nature and repeating her affirming message, Mama encourages Izzy to see her own unique beauty. This story about a multiracial child navigating identity and belonging draws from author Tasha Spillett-Sumner_ã_s own experience growing up as an Afro-Indigenous girl. Lyrical text and warm, lively illustrations show Izzy_ã_s journey as she learns to celebrate the differences that make her uniquely beautiful, and the connection to her mother that transcends physical traits."
