  Black Is Brown Is Tan
Arnold Adoff (Author), Emily Arnold McCully (Illustrator)
First published in 1973, this book marked the first acknowledgment of an interracial family in children's book publishing. The lyrical text depicts an interracial home in which there is fun, security, and plenty of love. With an African American mother, the “skin color of chocolate,” and a Caucasian father, who's skin is “not white, but light in color with tans and pinks and all the colors of the rainbow,” this story blends colors in such a way that the beauty of this family truly shines through. In this 2004 version, McCully has updated the illustrations with watercolor paintings to show the brown-skinned momma, the white daddy, and the two children in a 21st-century setting.
