Review

"Another brilliant book to be read by children of all ages. Those of us who think of ourselves as grown-ups, it reconnects us with our child's heart and rekindles hope." - Mazin Qumsiyeh, Professor, Bethlehem University


"In You Are the Color, readers journey with young Thaer through devastating loss before capturing bright hope with the help of a kind teacher. Accompanied by Noor Alshalabi's gorgeous illustrations, Rifk Ebeid illuminates the effects of the Palestinian Nakba and its displacement on childhood, as well as the powerful resilience of young children." - Sahar Mustafah, author of The Beauty of Your Face, a 2020 Notable Book by the New York Times Book Review


"Rifk Ebeid's latest children book, You Are the Color, is heartbreaking and yet heartwarming. It is the story of innocence, struggle and hope. It is the story of all Palestinian refugees and their descendants in the last 75 years. It is a profound representation of the larger struggle of generations of Palestinians insisting to remember where they come from, and to remain committed to their mission in life, that of freedom and justice. Noor Alshalabi's drawings are stunning and convey the innocence and purity of the story in a powerful and effective way. You Are the Color is another great addition to the Palestinian children literature genre." - Ramzy Baroud, Palestinian Author and Journalist


"This children's book speaks straight into my heart! I wish I had this book when I was a little kid. It is such an important and also positive narrative for children to learn about the history of Palestine. I also love the illustrations and how the color theme changes along side the script and it's emotion." - Malak Mattar, Artist
