KIRKUS REVIEW

While black is the rallying cry, brown is the skin color, here noted as it appears in city and country, in chocolate and cookies and rolls--which ""Are brown on the outside and scrumptious to bite--/ It's amazing how many ways brown can delight!"" Also on ""A man from Liberia, one from Peru,/ Some ladies from Burma, and Mexico, too."" Then ""I remembered some people have fun/ On the beach getting brown in the sun."" Coming from two involved, aware Negroes, this surprises by its simplicism; but if it matches your needs, you may want to overlook its shortcomings (trite text, undistinguished drawings) as a picture book too.
