Chris Raschka is one of my favorite picture book illustrators and in Skin Again he has teamed up with celebrated writer Bell Hooks for an exuberant and sensitive exploration for young children of what skin color signifies. "The skin I'm in is just a covering. If you want to know who I am you have got to come inside and open your heart way wide." This is a book that wants to be read aloud again and again. There are elements of call and response here with lovely illustration that open the meaning wide.
