Honeysmoke: A Story of Finding Your Color

In stock (72 copies available)

A young biracial girl looks around her world for her color. She finally chooses her own, and creates a new word for herself--honeysmoke.
Simone wants a color.
She asks Mama, "Am I black or white?"
"Boo," Mama says, just like mamas do, "a color is just a word."
She asks Daddy, "Am I black or white?"
"Well," Daddy says, just like daddies do, "you're a little bit of both."
For multiracial children, and all children everywhere, this picture book offers a universal message that empowers young people to create their own self-identity.
Simone knows her color--she is honeysmoke.
This will appeal to so many biracial kids looking for a way to embrace every part of themselves. --NBCNews.com
A terrific addition to the WeNeedDiverseBooks canon, where it joins such books as Selina Alko's I'm Your Peanut Butter Big Brother and Taye Diggs' Mixed Me!. -- Booklist
