Author, Podcaster, Entertainment Specialist Lin. Woods Releases Children’s Book on Kids Confronting  Racism, See Me Not My Color: Another Kenny Can Life Lesson Story

A young boy unexpectedly teaches another boy that skin color does not matter and that What is inside a person counts.

(St. Louis/Los Angeles) Author, Podcaster, and Family Entertainment Specialist Lin. Woods returns to the literary scene with her second children’s book in Woods’ Kenny Can book series, See Me Not My Color: Another Kenny Can Life Lesson Story (published by Xlibris).

 In a world where people continue to face elements of racism in their daily lives, See Me Not My Color: Another Kenny Can Life Lesson Story, takes elementary schooler Kenny Can on a journey to his favorite place in the world where he encounters racism for the first time. This is also where Kenny, his cousins, and best friend Jake unexpectedly teach another boy from school that skin color does not matter, that it’s what is inside a person that counts, and that humanity is one race, the human race.

 An excerpt from the book reads:

After that, Evan felt really bad about what he’d said and done to the crew. Love had moved his heart. He looked at the five of them and said, “You guys are right. Color should not matter. People are people, even if they are purple, green, or blue! And besides, you guys are really cool, peeps.”

“We live at a time where racism has stepped front and center of life’s stage. This book will start a dialogue about race with our children to teach them that we are all the same no matter our skin color. We all love, hurt, cry, bleed red, and feel joy. We are all human beings. And if you get to know others outside of your race and community, you will find they are basically just like you,” Woods says. When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, she answers, “Let’s not judge people based on their skin color. If we do, we could be missing out on a great friend. Choose love.”

See Me, Not My Color: Another Kenny Can Life Lesson Story is available on digital platforms around the world, including and Barnes & Noble.
