Winnie Silaa was born in Moshi Tanzania. She wrote this book for children, because she wanted to show the children how diverse the world is. Whichever family they evolve from, they are actually the same as every child of this world. The children should learn to be open-minded, in order to eliminate prejudice within the society they live in, especially skin colour clichés. Diversity is the real world we live in.
Rachel and Fatima discovered, that they have different skin colours while they were playing in kindergarten playing ground.
Then Natalie, a nursery teacher, explained to the children a new way of seeing the importance of acceptance of each other, without prejudges, she wanted the kids to keep on sending this message to their families and friends, where the ﬁrst learning starts, so that everyone on this planet knows that racism is nothing but a self-lie.
