New Children’s Book Lets Kids Choose Their Own Skin Color


Trending Now


Mother-daughter publishing duo Nancy and Sara Ganz recently announced their first book available on Amazon—and it gives children the chance to customize the main character’s skin tone!

The first of a 12-book Nancy’s Feels Good Fables collection, the new children’s book Tina Searches for Her Dream helps kiddos to find themselves in the story and see themselves in the illustrations. Authored by parenting and executive coach Nancy J. Janz and illustrated by Michelle Baron, this book is a must-have addition to your child’s at-home library.

Instead of one look for the main character, children can choose Tina’s skin tone—selecting from either the deepest, medium, or lightest option. The brand-new book can help the young child to learn about their own individual gifts and talents and help parents to understand that children may not always conform to their expectations.

This soon-to-be released read helps to normalize diversity and comes with key messages about compassion, empathy, acceptance and more. Tina Searches for Her Dream is available in Amazon starting Mar. 3, 2021 for the suggested retail price of $21.95. Your child can choose between the three editions: Deepest Skin Tone, Medium Skin Tone, or Lightest Skin Tone.
