It knows how to keep your temperature right around 98.6°F (37°C) to keep you and your cells healthy. Your skin can respond to messages sent out by your hypothalamus (say: hy-po-THAL-uh-mus), the brain's inner thermometer. The next layer down is the dermis(say: DUR-mis). You can't see your dermis because it's hidden under your epidermis.

It is perfect to read at home, and in classrooms, to support your child's life-long learning journey. Overall, I really enjoy reading the kyrielle sonnet. Everything comes together in a very flowy, playful, and intimate way. It allows the reader to feels vulnerable too, not just the speaker. The layer on the outside is called the epidermis (say: eh-pih-DUR-mis). The epidermis is the part of your skin you can see. The next layer down is the dermis (say: DUR-mis). You can't see your dermis because it's hidden under your epidermis. The dermis contains nerve endings, blood vessels, oil glands, and sweat glands. It also contains collagen and elastin, which are tough and stretchy.We are reminded that ‘ racism isn’t always about calling people names‘. Rather it is ‘ also about the way that things are done to stop people who are not white from being equal’. It can also be about organisations. We’re offered guidance about what to do when we experience racism, so that we use a ‘ loud voice‘ to say that racism is not ‘all right‘ and tell an adult you trust. We’re reminded that racism can be found anywhere. However being racist is ‘ never OK’. It is perfect to read at home, and in classrooms, to support your child's life-long learning journey. Read more Details My Skin Your Skin is a powerful book to help children and adults have meaningful discussions about race and anti-racism. Most importantly, the book empowers children to be the best versions of themselves; to have self-love, self-esteem and self-worth, irrespective of their skin colour.

Delighted to have been showcased on Penguin Random’s House new children’s picture books, for 2021, for my new book My Skin, Your Skin. When the cells are ready, they start moving toward the top of your epidermis. This trip takes about 2 weeks to a month. As newer cells continue to move up, older cells near the top die and rise to the surface of your skin. What you see on your hands (and everywhere else on your body) are really dead skin cells. I am delighted to have written My Skin, Your Skin, coming in autumn 2021. Illustrated by the talented Onyinye Iwu It’s aimed at children aged 4 and above, explaining what racism is, why it is wrong, what children can do if they see it or experience it. My Skin, Your Skin is an important book for parents to share with their children, to support children with their understanding building an anti-racist stance from an early age. I also explore how important it is for children to be empowered and to celebrate their achievements and greatness. This book is the first step in a lifelong journey. Written by Early Years expert and children's media creator, Laura Henry-Allain MBE, My Skin, Your Skin is a powerful book to support discussions about race and anti-racism.Containing explanations on key words and concepts written in child-friendly, accessible language, with relatable examples, this book supports children’s understanding in building an anti-racist stance from an early age. Look down at your hands for a minute. Even though you can't see anything happening, your epidermis is hard at work. At the bottom of the epidermis, new skin cells are forming. So just in the time it took you to read this far, you've probably lost about 40,000 cells. That's almost 9 pounds (4 kilograms) of cells every year! But don't think your skin might wear out someday. Your epidermis is always making new skin cells that rise to the top to replace the old ones. Most of the cells in your epidermis (95%) work to make new skin cells. What's Melanin?

My Skin, Your Skin by LAURA HENRY-ALLAIN MBE, Onyinye Iwu

The nerve endings in your dermis tell you how things feel when you touch them. They work with your brain and nervous system, so that your brain gets the message about what you're touching. Is it the soft fur of a cat or the rough surface of your skateboard? Your skin can help if you're feeling too hot or too cold. Your blood vessels, hair, and sweat glands cooperate to keep your body at just the right temperature. If you were to run around in the heat, you could get overheated. If you play outside when it's cold, your inner temperature could drop. Either way, your skin can help. That's why your skin gets tan if you spend a lot of time in the sun. But even though melanin is mighty, it can't shield you all by itself. You'll want to wear sunscreen and protective clothing, such as a hat, to prevent painful sunburns. Protecting your skin now also can help prevent skin cancer when you get older. What's the Dermis? My Skin, Your Skin is a powerful book to help children and adults have meaningful discussions about race and anti-racism. Most importantly, the book empowers children to be the best versions of themselves; to have self-love, self-esteem and self-worth, irrespective of their skin colour. Containing explanations on key words and concepts written in child-friendly, accessible language, with relatable examples, this book supports children's understanding in building an anti-racist stance from an early age.And what about the other 5%? They make a substance called melanin (say: MEL-uh-nun). Melanin gives skin its color. The darker your skin is, the more melanin you have. When you go out into the sun, these cells make extra melanin to protect you from getting burned by the sun's ultraviolet, or UV, rays. The dermis is home to the oil glands, too. These are also called sebaceous (say: sih-BAY-shus) glands, and they are always producing sebum (say: SEE-bum). Sebum is your skin's own natural oil. It rises to the surface of your epidermis to keep your skin lubricated and protected. It also makes your skin waterproof — as long as sebum's on the scene, your skin won't absorb water and get soggy. What Are Sweat Glands?

If you've been running around on a hot day, your blood vessels get the signal from the hypothalamus to release some of your body's heat. They do this by bringing warm blood closer to the surface of your skin. That's why you sometimes get a red face when you run around. This book was specifically written by producer, educator and consultant, Laura Henry-Allain MBE, to support parents, teachers and carers to explain what racism is, why it is wrong, and what children can do if they see it or experience it. It also explores how important it is for children to celebrate their achievements and greatness. What about when you're ice-skating or sledding? When you're cold, your blood vessels keep your body from losing heat by narrowing as much as possible and keeping the warm blood away from the skin's surface. You might notice tiny bumps on your skin. Most kids call these goosebumps, but the fancy name for them is the pilomotor (say: PY-lo-mo-ter) reflex. The reflex makes special tiny muscles called the erector pili (say: ee-REK-tur pee-LEE) muscles pull on your hairs so they stand up very straight. How Can I Keep My Skin Healthy? Your hair follicles rely on your sebaceous glands to bring on the shine. Connected to each follicle in the dermis layer is a tiny sebaceous gland that releases sebum onto the hair. This lightly coats the hair with oil, giving it some shine and a little waterproofing. How Can Skin Warm and Cool You? It is perfect to read at home, and in classrooms, to support your child’s life-long learning journey.This layer is where you'll find the start of hair, too. Each hair on your body grows out of a tiny tube in the skin called a follicle (say: FAHL-ih-kul). Every follicle has its roots way down in the subcutaneous layer and continues up through the dermis.
