Anyway, this book opens up to a two-page spread of hands of all different colors, from white to black black. The girls and Sam had such fun matching their own hands to this page! It was so neat for me to watch them. From there, the three of them started holding their arms against eachother, comparing colors. All this time I've thought Ellie was darker than Lizzie, but arms together, they seem to be the exact same shade of brown. Although, Lizzie has darkened this summer with all her time in the pool (yes, black people DO tan, I've discovered!). The book was delightful and I'm so glad I got it. After we read it, we were able to have a really good discussion about God's love of color and variety and how no one color of skin is better or worse than the other, etc.
