What's Wrong with my Skin children's book

“What’s Wrong with my Skin?”: A must-read book for Parents and Children

“What’s Wrong with my Skin?” is a children’s book by my sister, Marjorie Frenette, a Filipina author. The book tells the story of Ligaya, a young girl with brown-coloured skin.

This book is an excellent way to teach young ones to embrace their individuality and uniqueness!
