The Skin You Live In by Michael Tyler

Your pumpkin pie slice skin,
your caramel corn nice skin;
your toffee wrapped,
ginger snapped
cinnamon spice skin!
Your butterscotch gold skin,
your lemon tart bold skin;
your mountain high apple pie,
cookie dough rolled skin!
— From "The Skin You Live In" by Michael Tyler

The Skin You Live In is a lively celebration of the many shades of skin that can be seen around the world. The book playfully takes on themes such as acceptance, self confidence, friendship, and diversity. Words and phrases rhyme throughout, making it extra fun to read (or even sing) aloud. This book is a must-have for all families!
