Magnificent Homespun Brown: A Celebration

"Deep secret brown" is how one little girl describes herself. "Feathery brown," says another, "Like the jagged shadows of hemlock branches thrown over me and Daddy on a gentle mountain hike." Each of these girls is a different brown, and each of them recognizes the same brown in part of their environment. These diverse girls come in many shapes, sizes, abilities, and more, but they all recognize themselves as beautiful... and they all have many people who love them.

Told by a succession of exuberant young narrators, Magnificent Homespun Brown is a story — a song, a poem, a celebration — about feeling at home in one’s own beloved skin. With vivid illustrations by Kaylani Juanita, Samara Cole Doyon sings a carol for the plenitude that surrounds us and the self each of us is meant to inhabit.

"Plenty of attention is given to the senses out of doors: one girl enjoys a caramel apple with her brother, who uses a wheelchair, while another family smooths 'every bump and curve' of 'towering summer sandcastles.' Throughout, the creators draw the beauty of the natural world — a forest, a snowstorm — into relationship with the characters until the twined concepts become part of a quilted family tree. A magnificent paean to a varied hue." — Publishers Weekly
