About To Love Me Is To Love the Skin I'm In

Deja feels uncomfortable in her skin. Because she does not see women in the media who look like her, she does not appreciate her own beauty. With the help of her older sister and her magic mirror, Deja goes on an adventure where she learns about accomplished, beautiful dark-skinned women. Through this journey, she begins to love and accept herself. Stephanie Carter wrote this book to help young children of all backgrounds appreciate their natural beauty and know their achievements are not limited by the way they look. It is Stephanie’s hope that this book will also spark conversation about colorism, acceptance and self-love.
