Actor/Author Taye Diggs wrote this timely story about a Chocolate little boy, who wished to be like others. His friends laughed and talked about his skin, eyes, and hair. The illustration by Shane W. Evans was over the top good for this picture book. The Lexile level is 160L- 530L and the age range for this picture book is Four to Seven years.
