I Am Brown

Author Ashok Banker and artist Sandhya Prabhat have teamed up on the picture book I Am Brown, an exuberant celebration of the skin you’re in! “ I am brown / I am perfect” declares a child in the book’s opening pages, and she and a chorus of other voices join to share how they play, what they wear, where they pray, and what kind of grownups they aspire to become. Prabhat’s cheerful, colorful illustrations echo Banker’s joyful prose to create a radiant affirmation that will speak to all children. Watch Prabhat introduce readers to their book in this on-demand video and get a behind-the-scenes look at its creation!
