A Celebration of Multiracial and Multicultural Identity
Brand:Loving Healing Press
Snacks and Wiggles are on a journey, snacking and dancing through their day to understand where they came from and why they are different from some of their friends. From Mommy's northern Maine woods to Daddy's Jamaican beaches, they will explore what it means to be from two different cultures. They will learn what sets them apart but also how their differences are exactly what make them special.
Key learning points include:
Many feelings are associated with figuring out your identity
There are many ways to be a family
It's important to understand differences
The color of your skin does not define you
Kindness is what unites us all
We are all the same on the inside
Each parent brings something unique to your identity and culture
No matter what you look like, you are loved for who you are
"As part of a mixed couple, we often receive stares, and my children get questions. It is so important to teach children to focus on the similarities rather than the differences and to understand that love breaks all barriers. Love the book!" --Dr. Deborah Gracia, D.O. and mom
"Sarah Porter has written a delightful, rhyming book with colorful illustrations that will help children of all cultures and races be proud of their identity and give them a sense of belonging. Children will understand the importance of embracing diversity and accepting others-regardless of the color of their skin or their diverse heritages. This book will delight all children who, at some point, will struggle with their identity." --Kim Larkins, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, author of Emma Lou the Yorkie Poo: Breathing in the Calm
"I'm Mixed and I'm Me is a must-read for any family, especially those with multicultural children. Beautifully written and colorfully illustrated, it's an excellent book to read with your kids. It teaches children the simple yet all-important lessons of self-love and empowerment." --Dr. Sonali Ruder, ER physician and founder of TheFoodiePhysician.com
