The debut picture book by author/illustrator Ron Grady, WHAT IS BROWN? follows a day in the life of a brown child in search of all the beautiful hues of brown around him. It is partly a concept book exploring things that are varying shades of brown: toasted bread, clay plates, the hair on Daddy's head, etc. But in a larger sense it associates these brown things with comfort and beauty.
Ron Grady is a preschool educator and researcher. His website, Childology.co, hosts his blog and illustrated resources for educators, parents and caregivers.
