Staff Pick: Chocolate Me

Chocolate Me

Relates the experiences of a dark-skinned, curly-haired child who wishes he could look more like the lighter-skinned children in his community until his mother helps him realize how wonderful he is inside and out.

Actor Taye Diggs uses his own childhood experiences to write Chocolate Me! It’s the story of a boy who’s teased by other kids at school because he looks different. He feels left out and wants to be like everyone else—what little kid wouldn’t? Thanks to his wise and loving mom, the boy learns to love the beautiful, chocolatey skin he’s in. This heartfelt picture book has big, bold, colorful drawings and simple, child-friendly text.
