What would it be like to never know the colours of skin? That is the experience of Phoebe's grandmother -- her "Nan-ma" who is blind. This is a lovely story of how Phoebe comes to accept her nickname. To help her Nan-ma better understand, Phoebe likens people's skin tone to different foods, realizing we are a beautiful array of colours. A perfect read aloud for grandparent's day, or for illustrating the themes of self-acceptance, self-pride, being biracial, and valuing one another's differences.
