This Mom Wrote A Book To Help Children Love Their Skin

Rebecca Manari is a mom, teacher and author. She wrote Brown Like Dosas, Samosas, And Sticky Chikki to help children everywhere feel beautiful in their skin. Rebecca tells BuzzFeed Life that the pressure for young people to fit into “an extremely unreasonable and rigid notion of what beauty is” inspired her to write the children’s book. Particularly in her country of India, children feel the need to conform to societal beauty standards younger and younger, she says.
