Just the Two of Us

Author:Will Smith- Floyd Cooper(Illustrator)

While the driving force behind Just the Two of Us is a father's intense love and lifelong commitment to his child, Smith also touches on such weighty and trouble-prone topics as hate, anger, peer pressure, and broken hearts. The narrator father prepares his son for some of these curve balls of life, encouraging him to face them with dignity, honesty, and consideration for others. The pictures and text may well serve as a launching platform for discussion -- a safe way to broach potentially difficult subjects.

Shades of Black

Author:Sandra L. Pinkney-Miles C. Pinkney (Illustrator)

The beauty of African-American children is celebrated in this joyous picture book. Wonderful, clear, full-color photographs of youngsters illustrate a poetic, vivid text that describes a range of skin and eye colors and hair textures. ("I am the midnight blue in a licorice stick/and the golden brown in sugar/I am the velvety orange in a peach/and the coppery brown in a pretzel.") Both the photographs and text with its refrain of "I am Black/I am Unique" impart a sense of pride and well-being. An affirmative message for children of all races.
