“I am mixed with all kinds of goodies."
Brother and sister Jay and Nia are the children of two worlds, and as they discover, they can enjoy the best of both. From Mommy’s jazz beats to Daddy’s classical piano, we dance with the twins through a book that explores what it is to be a mixed-race child, proving that a child is more than the sum of their parents.
Follow along with Jay and Nia as they laugh, learn and grow.
Garcelle Beauvais' I am Mixed is for all races and cultures, not just multi racial children. Co-written by Sebastian A. Jones, the messages in the I am Mixed book invite us to start talking to our kids about race and culture. To help the process along, a short set of questions for parents to discuss with their child is at the end -- although you may not need them. The book is so fun and engaging, it makes starting the conversation a breeze.
Exquisitely illustrated by James C. Webster, “I Am Mixed” creates metaphors that kids will understand, Nia says, “I am all things bright and soft and light. And beautiful dark.” Jay says, “I am an Irish jig to an African beat.
As Halle Berry notes in the forward for the book, “I AM MIXED is an invaluable teaching tool that all children of all races can learn from.” We recommend I am Mixed for all ages --young and old.
