Happy in your skin
There is an absence of cross-cultural/ethnic books in K-12. Especially, books written by parents having first hand experience. Representation is key, when kids see themselves in a books or have teachers that look like them, research has shown, they excel and can see themselves as successful. This book is a touching narrative that teaches kids to not only tolerate, but to embrace human differences.
It is imperative that teachers and families build cross cultural competence. This book is a great step to building, also one that is easily digestible for kids and fun to read! The visual/animation bring the story to life! I highly recommend as a fun and easy read for educators and families.
