Showing Our True Colors by Mary Miscisin; Jeff Haines (Illustrator)Unlike so many books in this genre, Showing Our True Colors presents a fun, even zany, approach to understanding and appreciating ourselves and others. Author Mary Miscisin's down to earth style and creative flair help explain the True Colors process in a way that all can easily understand. Included with the book are colorful Character Cards, each representing one of four main personality styles. With these cards at the ready, Miscisin guides us on a journey of self-discovery to find our unique strengths and talents--our True Colors. As we begin to understand our individual Color Spectrum, we become better equipped to appreciate our uniqueness. But Miscisin doesn't stop there. The key elements of this book go beyond tolerance, to appreciation for others. As she unravels the characteristics behind each of the four colors--Blue, Orange, God, Green--Miscisin brings us to a clearer understanding of the differences in those around us. And she reveals simple steps we can take to reduce conflict and improve communication. Throughout the book, charming anectodes are used to convey how the True Colors concepts can be used in real life situations. These together with a collection of cartoon-style illustrations make Showing Our True Colors an easy and enjoyable read.
