My favorite uncle who was a very astute man used to say, "God mixes and adds more colors so there are more colors to love. Birds, butterflies, flowers and peacocks have all these beautiful colors and God picked our colors for us as well. He wanted more beauty for the world, so He was always thinking up more beautiful colors to add to it."
I also recommend "David's Drawing," "Colors Come From God Just Like Me," "The Two Mrs. Gibsons," a book about a beautiful little girl whose mother is Japanese and her father is black and "How My Parents Learned to Eat," another delightful book about a bi-racial child and the two cultures she happily shares. This book deserves a place of honor! It is for everybody!
me? ok, i'm just happy to have a book that features interracial relationships instead of whitemom with whitedad, blackmom with blackdad. My 3 year old has begun to note a difference and I wanted a fun way to talk about our unique family make-up. This has been it. We talk about what WE like at each page as well. (mom likes veggies, dad would go with those ribs or chicken, our girls like artichoke and chicken. Mama likes most animals, but daddy prefers dogs, our little girls like them all.)
another thing I really like is that the mothers hair is worn naturally. My 3 year old knows that some people have straight hair and some curly, but lately she has observed that MOST people (black or white) have straight hair (perm, wig, ect.) and less people have curly. I believe very strongly in encouraging an acceptance of personal beauty, this book allows for that.
The little girl discovers that her preferences are a blend of both her parents; she's able to appreciate her mixed heritage and select her own favorites. Her choices and she, herself, are all "Just right."
This book offers a surface look at a biracial child's experience and focuses only on the positive. It does not address some of the more challenging feelings and experiences which biracial children face as they learn how to parse their dual racial identity.
Adoption-attuned Lens: For kids with a racially mixed heritage parents might want to extend the conversation to explore the more challenging aspects that result from their diverse heritage. It is important to encourage children to voice the totality of their experiences and emotions and avoid an exclusive focus on the positive.
—Gayle H. Swift, “ABC, Adoption & Me, A Multicultural Picture Book”

This a book meant to boost the self esteem of bi/multi racial children. I think it's very unfortunate that it does not address any of emotional/social issues. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Lissa Parker
