I absolutely love reading to our son. He looks forward to story time with Mommy, and we read 2 or 3 books at a time. We have plenty of books about shapes, colors, animals, in both English and/or Spanish, and our latest addition is about celebrating his diversity. I purchased three books that we are truly enjoying:
A Rainbow of Friends is a wonderful and a colorful illustrated book. With simple and short paragraphs it talks about the differences between friends (some like sports, some like to read, some dress different), and how friends comes in all shapes and sizes. As they celebrate how unique and special each one of them are the world becomes a better place.
This is also a beautifully illustrated book with short sentences about the children’s physical and cultural differences. That where ever they are, and whoever you are all over the world we are all the same.
Sesame Street characters portrays the physical differences of each one of us: nose, hair, face, etc. That though we’re different, we’re the same making the world a fun place!
We’re having so much fun celebrating his diversity, learning and growing together as a multicultural family. He’s a smart, well rounded little boy who is learning where he comes from and despite the differences he sees among his friends, he knows that we are all the same!
