    Difference is only skin deep.

    A beautiful wordless picture book.

    People come in different colours. But no matter what they look like, people all eat when they’re hungry, shiver when they’re cold, smile when they’re happy.

    Originally published in Brazil, this wordless picture book takes a playful look at the idea of race, and shows us that we are all the same – whatever colour we happen to be.

    Editor’s Choice in the Children’s Books Ireland Reading Guide 2018

    ‘Extraordinarily simple and complex all at once, silently shouting a basic truth about the human condition: we are all different, we are all the same.’ – Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, award-winning picture book author/artist

    ‘A powerful wordless exploration of the paradigms surrounding skin colour, Colour of People gently breaks the barriers of racism and invites readers to question their own human connections.’ – Tarsila Kruse, picture book artist

    ‘A stunning book – a book for all mankind’ – Patricia Forde, author of The Wordsmith

    ‘A thought-provoking and innovative way to introduce children to the concept of diversity.’ – Immigrant Council of Ireland

    ‘Playful without being didactic, this is one every school library should have’ – Children’s Books Ireland Reading Guide 2018

    ‘This is the perfect discussion starter for younger children about race, especially as it introduces the topic in a light-hearted way, with a simple and important message at its heart. I liked the simple, playful illustrations, the fact that it is a wordless book so you can make your own interpretations and conclusions, the message at the heart of the book; that we are all more similar than we are different.’ – Chikaru
