    This book talks about how all the colors of the earth represent children. and talks about skin color and hair types such as a brown bear, the golden grass of the savanna, and the pink sand of the beach. This story explains how colors can be blended together and how everyone should accept others for who they are.I thought this book was inspiring and the author did a very good job of writing it to help not only children but adults understand the way nature can be communicated.In a classroom I would use this book in art class to spark creativity and beauty in the children and their art pieces.

    This book is beautifully illustrated with oil paintings. The book relates the color of different children's skin and the texture of their hair to things found in nature. Often the words are almost poetic and the way the words sound is similar to the idea they represent For example using crackling in conjunction with leaves. I really enjoyed this book.

    This beautifully depicted book explores the earth and all the unique and beautiful colors it holds. I would use this book in art class to spark creativity and beauty in the children and their art pieces.

    This was a book that was beautiful in its simplicity. It would be a great introduction for young children to start talking about race, and why everyone looks different on the outside. I like how the author took colors and related them to animals or things children are familiar with. It takes a tricky subject and makes it understandable for even the youngest readers.

    Summary: This book is about how all children look different. Children are all different colors of the earth. It shows that everyone can be friends, no matter what they look like.Personal Response: This book made me think of all the different types of students that I will have in the classroom. It is a good book to show that people may look different yet we are still all alike. It also emphasizes that friendship can be between everyone. Classroom Extension Ideas: 1. The students could draw/color pictures of themselves so they could see how everyone is different/alike.2. The students could write some sentences about how their appearance compares to something else. For example, children come with hair like bouncy baby lambs.

    This book describes the different colors of people comparing the colors to things from nature like animals and plants. It also describes textures of hair with analogies. The text is printed in wavy patterns and flows around the painted illustrations.This could be used in curriculum to teach that there are many different colors of people, but it is too superficial to be very meaningful.

    The theme of diversity is important, yes. However, I feel that it goes a lot deeper than just "Kids come in different colors and hair textures", however poetically it's expressed.And honestly, I didn't like the writing style, though ymmv over that. Gave this one away.

    All the Colors of the Earth, written by Sheila HamanakaThis is a multicultural book about how children come in all the colors of the earth. The book compares children to the different colors of the earth. Oil paint on canvas was used for the illustrations.I love this book because it shows how beautiful and how different all children/people are who live together on this earth, but it also shows how we are all the same too. The words dance across each page and the pictures tell their own story. Extension Activity:Color mixing. Use paint. Provide a paper plate for each child. Put paint (different colors) into small cups. Have children mix paints together to make new colors.

    Hamanaka, Sheila. All the colors of the Earth. (2007). New York: Weston Woods Studio. This story was inspired by the author’s children’s multi-ethnic heritage. The story starts by stating that children come in all the colors of the earth and it names colors of animals and things in nature, while in the background can be heard realistic sounds made by those animals and things. Then the story compares love and objects and colors in nature. The narration by Crystal Talietero is expressive and gentle and expresses the wonder of children, nature, and love. There is also jaunty background music that sets a happy mood but doesn’t distract from the story. After the story ends, the narrator and children sing the words of the book. I had to re-listen to the story two times to see if there were patterns and/or connections between the animals, objects and human features listed. I found it very easy to get a clear idea of the tone and theme of love and joy in children from the narrator’s voice, the background music, and sound effects, and key words, such as colors, glows, crackling, and love. However, I wished I had the additional input of the print book’s pictures to get the full impact of this picture book. I also found myself trying to imagine what the pictures in the book looked like, how color was used, and what style of drawing was used. Listening to this picture book instead of reading it and looking at the pictures was on the one hand satisfying because of the soothing voice, happy music and fun sound effects. On the other hand, I really missed seeing the pictures. It would have been ideal to look at the book while I listened to the audio book.

    Sheila Hamanaka has managed to turn difference of color into pure poetry. In "All of the Colors of the Earth," she begins: "Children come in all the colors of the earth" and describes what she means both in gorgeous illustrations and soaring poetry.The softly-colored pictures by the author/illustrator show the similarities between the diversity of color on the planet, and those who inhabit it. For example, one girl is described as having a complexion like the "crackling russets of fallen leaves." Two little boys playing on the beach have skin the color of "the tinkling pinks of tiny seashells by the rumbling sea." All children, she avers, no matter what color, are united by love, for "love is amber and ivory and ginger and sweet." "Children come in all the colors of love, In endless shades of you and me."Evaluation: This book celebrates difference, and encourages kids to see it as part of nature itself, and as beautiful.
