black is brown is tan

by Arnold Adoff
Illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully

Published by Amistad/HarperCollins, 2002
32 pages
ISBN: 0-06-028776-4

Ages 3 - 7

Arnold Adoff's groundbreaking picture book about an interracial (African American/white) family has been completely reillustrated in a larger format by Emily Arnold McCully, the book's original illustrator. Although Adoff's love poem to his multiracial family has continued to resonate since its first publication in1973, McCully's original illustrations had dated, so this new edition is especially welcome. CCBC categories: New Edition Of Old Favorites; Poetry.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
