Kissed by the Sun

By Brenda Arce

Kissed by the Sun is a story about family, acceptance, diversity, and what makes us unique. Growing up with strong Puerto Rican traditions, Amelia learns about who she is and why she is different from her classmates. As she embraces her identity, accent, and use of Spanglish words, she wins over everyone's hearts. 

This book teaches children it is important to learn to accept one another, no matter how we look, speak, or where we come. We are all beautiful despite our differences, even if our skin looks like it was Kissed by the Sun.
