Developmental markers: https://startingwithstories.org/infants/.

  • Infants are gradually becoming aware of self as a separate being and beginning to notice and
    respond to skin color cues (around 6 months).


  • While reading this (and other books) point out all the differences (and similarities) you notice about the babies in this book including skin color.
  • Look in a mirror with your baby and talk about who they are and what they look like.
  • Notice skin color, just like you notice the colors of cars or blocks when you are out in the world.
