This book is a MUST for teaching diversity and identity issues with students. It tells the tale of a white rabbit who admires the color of his friend’s (la niña bonita) black skin. The rabbit does everything he can to become black like his friend (i.e., he drinks black coffee), to no avail. In the end, he marries a black rabbit and they have beautiful babies of all colors. The message and the illustrations in this beautiful story make it a perfect book for use with young and adolescent students.
