Format: Paperback
As a teacher, I am so grateful to the authors for providing my students with such dynamic reading material. My students immediately identified with the characters and they began to have spontaneous conversations about the issues presented. I am always searching for books that respect a child's perspective as well as their feelings and questions. This series does all three! It is challenging growing up, no matter who you are or what you look like. Finally, a series that addresses these real concerns with humor and love.
Thank You.

My daughter is 8 years old and she loved this! Our children absolutely need to be taught about acceptance these days. What's been done with Amy Hodgepodge that makes it extra special, is that they also learn other lessons on top of acceptance. Good job!

The Amy Hodgepodge series is a wonderful (and necessary) contribution to kids lit! My daughter and nieces (and nephew) now have a heroine to love and follow that looks like them. We look forward to reading ALL of the Amy Hodgepodge books.

I love the Amy Hodgepodge books! I'm so thankful for this modern series where being multiracial is the norm. :-) And the storyline is truly universal. Amy is going through the usual angst of starting a new school, trying to fit in and make new friends (took me right back to my own grade-school years like it was yesterday). I love the way the story is written in the first person ~ Kim & Kevin did a great job of capturing the spirit of a fourth-grader, and it really draws kids in. Even my four-year old boy who has sworn off all things "girlish" wanted to hear more of the story (!). The A.H. web site is fun too. :-)

Wow! If only I had books like this told from a multi-ethnic perspective when I was growing up! As a person of mixed race myself, I appreciated how easily relatable this character's true-to-life experiences are. Unlike the one-dimensional characters in most children's books, Amy is a charming character children of all ages and races can identify with. As a former teacher I would've loved to have had this in my library. As a stay-at-home mom I plan to get the set for my own kids and give it as a gift to other mixed race children to learn about the beauty of multiculturalism from someone just like them.

I loved this book! Everything from the artwork to how the authors were really able to get inside of a child's heart and deal with all the issues that they have to deal with when it comes to being "different." Amy is such a sweet character, my six year old adores her and my 8 year old neighbor next door does too. They really enjoy reading all about her and her friends! Especially Rusty, although the book is skewed toward girls, I know boys would enjoy it as well.

My six and a half year old daughter has just finished first grade, is a voracious reader and has started reading chapter books on her own. We just found this one and she loves it! The other night she took it to bed with her and a flashlight because she just couldn't put it down. How delightful that these books have come along right on time for her and her multiracial/multicultural friends like her. I can tell she is very intrigued to read about characters with family backgrounds that she and her friends can personally relate to. She has announced that she wants to collect all the Amy Hodgepodge books and will be adding them to her bookshelf right next to her Junie B. Jones and Magic Tree House collections.

I can't say enough how much I love this series! Finally multiracial girls have a heroine in Amy Hodgepodge. However, Amy is a great role model for all kids. Amy's story is really about honoring your individuality in a world that oftens pressures kids to conform. I have ordered the series for my three-year-old daughter because I know she will love them as much as I do. Definitely well written, witty, and wise. A great discovery.
