Hamanaka, HarperTrophy; 1 Mulberry edition
Included in Brightly.com's 2017 list of recommended diverse poetry picture books for kids, this beautifully illustrated book "celebrates the beauty of diversity to the fullest through engaging, rhyming text," commented Charnaie Gordon in her Brightly.com review. All the Colors of the Earth "would be a wonderful book to use in multicultural classrooms in schools."
"How better to celebrate ethnic diversity than to look to children, the hope of the future? This glorious picture book does just that."—Booklist
"A poetic picture book and an exemplary work of art. The simple text describes children's skin tones and hair in terms of natural phenomena and then describes love for these children with rich colors and flavors. A celebration of diversity." —School Library Journal
