Illustrated by Jean Reschofsky
The Colors of Christmas, written in French and translated into English, Spanish, and Chinese, inspires children to appreciate the spirit of Christmas from the perspective of indigenous peoples around the world. The text teaches diversity and tolerance, while lavish illustrations highlight the native costumes and colorful lives of diverse cultures. The multilingual poem is a treasure that relates the true Christmas spirit—one of many colors. Jean Reschofsky has illustrated Native Americans, indigenous Africans, and Eskimos, each from their cultural perspective in native dress, identifying their cultural heritage.
The tender message behind the poetry illuminates the importance of celebrating Christmas with an open heart toward diversity. Gently explaining that races are all alike and reiterating that Christmas is of many colors, Colors of Christmas will become a classic resource in spreading the holiday spirit among children of all cultures--and also reaching out to the child in all of us.
