A children’s book is desirable if a blend of a well-thought subject, a good but simplified storyline, fun illustrations for easier understanding of the young minds, vibrant expression of the book, and most importantly ability to multi-task by talking about new ideas. This book has all of that and much more. I was extremely pleased to read the children’s book “ How our Skin sparkles” by Aditi Wardhan Singh.
With lyrical flow in her narrative, she has worked her magic in explaining the significance of skin and the basis behind different colors. Comparing the beauty of different skin colors with the colors of a rainbow and the flowers in a garden are some smart techniques she has used to educate a child about the beauty of being unique.
I find mentioning the pigmentation similar to a colorful ball pit, a very unique idea. In her book, she talks about shakkarpare ( Indian sweet treat ), Krishna ( Indian God) for blue color in his skin, the scientific reasons behind the skin color, and even the ancestral traits through our skin tones. It is a window for parents to introduce a few more concepts from Indian culture as they read or explain the content of this book to their children.
The author by the means of her book diligently works on decluttering the bigger issues that our children face while dealing with society and its norms. Issues like discrimination or bullying due to color and race can be effectively handled from early on if our children are told on time that color is a part of our physical qualities but does not define us entirely as an individual. Color can never be the reason for anyone to feel short of capabilities required to rise and shine in life.
I highly recommend this book to read by all parents and children to understand the simple yet crucial facts behind different skin tones and to help them accept that everyone is unique. The author concludes the book with a beautiful moral by mentioning how our inner beauty can accentuate our presence. Kindness, knowledge, and gratitude are the characteristics that help one shine and not the color.
After reading this book, my daughter said heartening lines and that tells me this book served its purpose for us.
She said “ Maa, with our different skin tones we collectively are like a palette that makes any gorgeous painting. So we make this world look beautiful for we all are colorful!
