The Fire Children is a traditional West African folk tale for young children that offers an explanation for why there are people of different colours on the earth.

The first man and woman are lonely. What should they do? They decide to fashion children out of clay. As they are baking the little figures in their fire, they're constantly interrupted by visits from the sky-god, Nyame. As a result, some of the children are pale and underdone, some are left in so long that they come out very dark, and the rest are every shade between.

The Fire Children is a lovely story to celebrate diversity.
