Book Review: All the Colors of the Earth by Sheila Hamanaka

"Reading to your child helps them become ready to start and stay in school. The fun doesn't have to stop when the reading is done! There are many skills that come can be initiated from reading a book. To build upon these skills, use activities to reinforce the learning."

 School Age: 1st to 3rd grade

Developmental Skill: Social and emotional developmental is foundational to all learning and can easily be described as regulating our emotions, understanding our emotions, showing emotional attachment and working well with others.

Book Review: Celebrate the colors of children and the colors of love - not black or white or yellow or red, but roaring brown, whispering gold, tinkling pink, and more. 

Activity: Talk to your child about why people are different colors (melanin in the skin) and how everyone is unique. Allow children to hold their hands next to other children's hands and compare who is darker and lighter.
