About The Author

Lisa M. Reed is the grandmother of two beautiful grandchildren Arianna and Jeremy.

She was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides in South Jersey.

The idea for the book came from the question posed by her granddaughter when she was just four years old.

She hopes this book will help children around the world see the beauty in the color of their skin. 

Lisa is also member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators

“What Color Is Your Skin” is a creative approach to teaching our youth to value the differences that we all have while loving themselves and being comfortable with how God created them. This book dares to explore the oftentimes taboo issues of diversity and various skin tones that are ever present in our society. This story innocently addresses a conversation that needs to be awakened within all of us starting at a child’s level. Sharing this story with our children will allow us to learn to appreciate the diversity and cultural differences that we all bring to the table.

Especially with today's society it was a great way of explaining how we're all different but still amazing.

Great Read!

This is the perfect example of how to explain WHAT COLOR ARE YOU. Never thought about comparing our skin colors to ice cream.
