My Skin Your Skin is a powerful book to help children and adults have meaningful discussions about race and anti-racism. Most importantly, the book empowers children to be the best versions of themselves; to have self-love, self-esteem and self-worth, irrespective of their skin colour.
This book was specifically written by Early Years expert and children’s media creator, Laura Henry-Allain MBE, to support parents, teachers and carers to explain what racism is, why it is wrong, and what children can do if they see it or experience it. It also explores how important it is for children to celebrate their achievements and greatness.
Fully-illustrated throughout by talented illustrator Onyinye Iwu, My Skin, Your Skin is aimed at children aged four and above.
Containing explanations on key words and concepts written in child-friendly, accessible language, with relatable examples, this book supports children’s understanding in building an anti-racist stance from an early age.
It is perfect to read at home, and in classrooms, to support your child’s life-long learning journey.
