In Spanish. An African American girl and her friends play together and learn that despite their physical differences, they are all really the same.

On a beautiful sunny day, an African American girl visits the park and rounds up a group of her friends for an afternoon of fun and playground games. As they play, this happy crew discovers that despite their physical differences-straight hair, curly hair; brown eyes, blue eyes; light skin, dark skin-they are all really the same.

Translated from Bein' with You This Way, La alegr a de ser t y yo invites readers of all ages to join in this celebration of diversity. Michael Bryant's illustrations add to the rhythm with an unforgettable cast of characters who share a sunny day and the universal childhood joy of just bein' together.
