Mixed Blessing: A Children’s Book About a Multiracial Family by Marsha Cosman

Mixed Blessing--a children's book coverA good amateur writer’s effort at rhyming and cohesive story. The story is accessible and realistic, easily allowing a child to see the beauty of difference and how difference exists amongst people and animals. The rhyme is mostly on but off sometimes and she chooses some language that to me reads as raising mixed ethnicity to a superior level over non-mixed ethnicity but I’m just going to find a way to reword those two pages. The illustration is vivid and realistic.

Recommendation: Recommended; ages 3-6
