by Monique Fields and Yesenia Moises




Overview -

A young biracial girl looks around her world for her color. She finally chooses her own, and creates a new word for herself--honeysmoke.

Simone wants a color.

She asks Mama, "Am I black or white?"

"Boo," Mama says, just like mamas do, "a color is just a word."

She asks Daddy, "Am I black or white?"

"Well," Daddy says, just like daddies do, "you're a little bit of both."

For multiracial children, and all children everywhere, this picture book offers a universal message that empowers young people to create their own self-identity.
