Reviews - What do customers think about The Color of Me?

A message of faith, acceptance,love, and spiritual wholeness  Nov 5, 2004
The Color of Me is a picturebook that deals with a powerful theological question: What color is God? Amid a peaceful rain and a large gathering, a small child discovers the answer. God's creation and goodness embodies all people, all races, all colors. The starkly vivid illustrations, featuring thick black outlines and rainbow hues, underscore a profound message of faith, acceptance, love, and spiritual wholeness.
 
multicultural lesson for children  Oct 28, 2004
God creates a world filled with color. "Then God blessed the colors with love, life, and purpose." But there comes the time when the people God created on the Earth start to argue about what color God is--green like the plants, blue like the sky, and so on. It isn't long before they are saying that God has the color of their own skin--black, red, yellow, etc. Their disagreements lead nowhere, until a rainbow forms across the sky and, as one of the people says, they all realize that God is not any one color, but is the "same colors as we are, [and] everyone is made from God's colors." McDunn works at a monastery for Benedictine Sisters in Minnesota. Knutson's vivid full-page illustrations accentuate the simple story's lesson about the equality of all races in the eyes of God.
 
What Color Is God?  Oct 11, 2004
A storybook for young children, The Color of Me relates colors to God's creation of soils, plants, creatures, and animals, then people, who are presented as "gifts to one another, different in color but he same in heart." In the second half of the story, a child who asks about the color of God hears a variety of answers including "like me" and "like my skin." The disagreements are washed away by a gentle, warm rain followed by a rainbow and a wise answer to the boy's repeated question, "So, what color is God?" Barbara Knutson's vibrant illustrations reinforce the message.
