Book Description
Anna, the interracial child of a white father and black mother, explores questions and yearnings she has about her identity by "switching" skin-colors with her father. With wit, compassion and a very light and non-didactic hand, this book examines issues of concern not only to interracial children, but to all children who have ever worried about their diferences. Full-color illustrations.
