The Beauty of Us All: Celebrating the Diversity of the World by Chandele Morris, illustrated by Marissa Napolitano, is an ebullient, vibrant, unapologetic homage to the beauty that comes only from being uniquely ourselves – just precisely the way we were made to be. Its message is inspiring and uplifting for children and beautifully diverse for people of all ages. Based on real, lived experience, Chandele Morris’ The Beauty of Us All begins with the illustrative example of brightly colored fish at an aquarium and expands the thinking outward and upward to include snowflakes, leaves, the delicate shadings of human skin, and host of other natural wonders that might otherwise go unnoticed and make a difference for those seeking pride in self and a sense of belonging.
Marissa Napolitano’s brilliant illustrations are pitch-perfect for the message, capturing every nuance without ever distracting from the poignant text. The Beauty of Us All by Chandele Morris is a sumptuous, deeply resonant, and impeccably packaged delight with a heartfelt message of diversity and inclusion. From the opening “This Book Belongs” to its closing list of affirmations, The Beauty of Us All: Celebrating the Diversity of the World by Chandele Morris offers a gateway to a better world. There are many great add-ons, too – a QR code from the publisher links the reader to a free poster with positive messages, and information on the inside cover page gives contact details for the author and how she can be scheduled for classroom visits, etc. The Beauty of Us All is more than a book – it is a revelation and, possibly, a revolution.
