A young biracial girl looks around her world for her color. She finally chooses her own, and creates a new word for herself–honeysmoke.Simone wants a color.She asks Mama, “Am I black or white?””Boo,” Mama says, just like mamas do, “a color is just a word.”She asks Daddy, “Am I black or white?””Well,” Daddy says, just like daddies do, “you’re a little bit of both.”For multiracial children, and all children everywhere, this picture book offers a universal message that empowers young people to create their own self-identity.Simone knows her color–she is honeysmoke.An Imprint Book”This will appeal to so many biracial kids looking for a way to embrace every part of themselves.” –NBCNews.com”A terrific addition to the WeNeedDiverseBooks canon, where it joins such books as Selina Alko’s I’m Your Peanut Butter Big Brother and Taye Diggs’ Mixed Me!.” –Booklist
