About :   The Ace Compeers: The Secrets of Skin Colour

Open your eyes! Ready your ears! It's time to learn with the Ace Compeers!

The Ace Compeers are a diverse group of friends committed to learning all about the world and helping others. Join Ang, Basma, Riley, Erika, and Manjeet as they learn about skin colour and the ways people are both different and similar.

Using kid-friendly language and an antiracist framework, this first book of The Ace Compeers series uses inquiry-based learning techniques to draw connections between skin colour, genetics, geography, and history. It sets the foundation upon which children can shift their preconceived ideas of race and adopt an accurate understanding of skin colour. This book also features study questions to foster a hunger for learning and guide discussion with young readers, making this book an excellent resource for parents, schools, and educational organizations.
