Because children learn from family members, media, or peers, parents and caretakers have a responsibility to teach their children what God has to say about the beauty of diversity in his image-bearers, with a particular focus on ethnic diversity. This colorful and compelling children's book serves as a resource and lifelong gift for children and parents, helping families understand diversity from a biblical perspective and with a clear picture of the beauty and glory of God.
Imani and Kayla are the best of friends who are learning to celebrate their different skin colors. As they look around them at the amazing colors in nature, they can see that their skin is another example of God's creativity! This joyful story takes a new approach to discussing race: instead of being colorblind, we can choose to celebrate each color God gave us and be colorFULL instead.
Dr. Evans explains in simple terms that we all are created in the image of God. We may look different, come from different places, and have a little or a lot, but God loves and values us equally. Therefore, we should love and value others as He does.

‘It was nearly the end of the summer holidays. In two weeks, Mummy was going to have her new baby.’ Getting a new baby brother or sister is really exciting!

Do you love running races like Joshua? Or do you worry about sports day like Rosie? However you feel about sports day, find out what God thinks about the things you are good at and discover what's even more important to God than being good at running.
Every person's skin has a particular shade or hue that we can appreciate. Children naturally wonder: Why are there so many skin colours? Why do I look a lot like some people and different from others? Which words best describe my skin colour? But sometimes we feel uncomfortable talking about skin tone, ethnicity & race. Inside these pages, kids will get to explore the ways each of us is uniquely designed and discover positive, creative ways to think & talk about the wonderful diversity of hues.

Do you want to raise anti-racist children? Do you long to learn but are too scared of saying or doing the wrong thing? Then Talking to Children about Race is for you. But before we start talking to our children, we must start chatting honestly with one another. Broadcaster Loretta Andrews and the educator Ruth Hill had been friends for years before the shocking death of George Floyd made it impossible not to dig deeper into the topic of race and how to explain racism to their children.
