A timely book about how it feels to be teased and taunted, and how each of us is sweet and lovely and delicious on the inside, no matter how we look. The boy is teased for looking different than the other kids. His skin is darker, his hair curlier. He tells his mother he wishes he could be more like everyone else. And she helps him to see how beautiful he really, truly is. For years before they both achieved acclaim in their respective professions, good friends Taye Diggs and Shane W. Evans wanted to collaborate on Chocolate Me , a book based on experiences of feeling different and trying to fit in as kids. Now, both men are fathers and see more than ever the need for a picture book that encourages all people, especially kids, to love themselves.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Taye DiggsPublisher: Feiwel & FriendsPublished: 09/27/2011ISBN: 9780312603267Pages: 40Weight: 0.90lbsSize: 10.60h x 8.80w x 0.40dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 07/25/2011Kirkus Reviews 08/15/2011Ebony 10/01/2011 pg. 38Essence 12/01/2011 pg. 80School Library Journal 12/01/2011 pg. 82Booklist 02/01/2012 pg. 84Essence 06/01/2012 pg. 95Hornbook Guide to Children 01/01/2012 pg. 25 - Marginal, Seriously FlawedAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 148467 / Chocolate Me!Reading Level: 2.1 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
