Happy in Our Skin

Happy in Our Skin
By Fran Manushkin
Illustrated by Lauren Tobia
Candlewick Press, 2015. Picture Book.

This rhyming picture book explores the wonders of skin of how “it keeps the outsides out and your insides in.” That it grows with you as you age and repairs itself when you get a scrape. The best thing of all is that every skin is unique and what a wonderful thing that is. Manushkin, known for her popular Katie Woo easy reader series, tells a delightful story about diversity that makes for a great-read aloud.
