Cuento de Luz
“Author and illustrator team Desirée Acevedo and Silvia Álvarez have produced a beautiful exploration of the colors of humanity. The illustrations are colorful and rich and the story is detailed and thought provoking. Above all the text strives to impart the message that skin-tone isn’t just one color, it’s many.” [School Library Connection]
