There is nothing more beautiful than being yourself. That’s the message of this wonderfully inclusive story. In this podcast episode of Read Out Loud, join author Fran Manushkin as she reads HAPPY IN OUR SKIN.
We recorded this episode of Read Out Loud in front of a live audience of picture book lovers during the KidLit TV Children’s Book Weekend on Governors Island.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Is there anything more splendid than a baby’s skin? For families of all stripes comes a sweet celebration of what makes us unique—and what holds us together.Look at you! You look so cute,in your brand-new birthday suit. Just savor these bouquets of babies—cocoa-brown, cinnamon, peaches and cream. As they grow, their clever skin does too, enjoying hugs and tickles, protecting them inside and out, and making them one of a kind. Fran Manushkin’s rollicking text and Lauren Tobia’s delicious illustrations paint a breezy and irresistible picture of the human family—and how wonderful it is to be just who you are.
