This amazing picturebook starts off "The skin I'm in...is just a covering. It cannot tell my story."
Try aligning this book with memoir writing, teaching tolerance, MLK, and studying picturebook craft (words married to illustrating), among other topics!!!

Steven says: "It's cool!"
Bianca says: "It reminds me of Martin Luther King."
