I Like Myself! by Karen Beaumont
I love everything about this book!!!!!! As a black woman raising a black boy in the US of A it is extremely important to me that my child sees himself represented in all aspects of his life. I find that this book brilliantly addresses many of the obstacles and insecurities that people of color face in this country in a fun and colorful way. I think all children should read it. Until we ALL understand one another's journey things will NOT CHANGE. Ignorance is only bliss if you are privileged enough to be ignorant.
I've had this book on my shelf for years. My oldest daughter is 12 and the book has been passed down to each child. It's so important to see all types of people in books and on TV...for that matter, in life in general. Introduce your children at a young age to everything you possibly can...(ALL children) this book is cute for anyone.
