I Am Mixedby Sebastian A. Jones
Jay and Nia are the children of two worlds, and as they will discover, they can enjoy the best of both. From Mommy's jazz beats to Daddy's classical piano, we will dance with the twins through a book that explores what it is to be of mixed ancestry, proving that a child is more than the sum of their parents. Created to be socially and environmentally conscious, I AM MIXED is printed on 100% recycled paper. "I Am Mixed is an invaluable teaching tool that all children from all races can learn from." - HALLE BERRY (from her foreword) "My son, as well as all of his friends, are mixed and they don't know any different. I don't know who this book is better for, the children of this generation or their parents. This book is a wonderful celebration of the beauty of coming from mixed ethnicities and cultures!" - JAIME PRESSLY (My Name is Earl) "Such a cute book with great illustrations and a sweet message." - HEIDI KLUM (America's Got Talent) "As a mother of a mixed-race child, I hope my daughter grows up to be proud of who she is and what makes her unique. I Am Mixed is a beautiful, sweet story that encourages children to look within themselves and appreciate the distinct heritage that makes each person special. It reminds us that our diverse cultures and traditions are things that should be honored and treasured." - LAURA LING Some of my favorite books as a kid were the Giving Tree and Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain. This is right there with those. Really. No tissue stuffing. It's beautifully illustrated and sincere. Well done Stranger Kids." - AFUA RICHARDSON (Top Cow Comics)

Me and my 4 yr old son absolutely LOVED this book!!! The imagery was beautiful and easily engaged my son. He asked me questions about being "mixed" and, I found myself having a much needed conversation with him about his cultural background. This book is a great way to help parents initiate dialogue about ethnicity with their children. Another aspect of the book I love is, it suggests ideas that parents can use to help their kiddie[s] understand what it means to be mixed. Fabulous book!
