We All Have Different Shades of Skin Story

Hello friends,

The last week has brought a lot of disbelief and unrest across our country.  The murder of George Floyd took place 30 minutes from my home.  My heart is broken for his family and friends.  This story is meant to be a way to begin to talk about the topic of skin color with young children.  Little ones don't understand racism, hate or injustice.  They MAY notice that we all have different color skin or hair.  This story is meant to provide a simple, basic way to talk about skin color.  A special thanks to Jamie and Duriel Johnson, and Simona Byron Boler for you input and guidance <3

  1. These are truly brilliant! I'm in England is there any way I could print them off to place in my playroom. I'm a childminder. 😀
