    One thought on “Mixed Me: A Tale of a Girl Who Is Both Black and White”

    1. The little girl in MIXED ME addresses a number of potentially hurtful questions and comments some children hear all the time and often don’t understand or know how to answer. Questions such as “What are you?” or “Why don’t you have the same skin color as your mom (or dad)?” are answered cheerfully, with a positive message repeated throughout the text. Colorful illustrations by talented teenager Anissa Riviere add to the book’s appeal for young pre-readers and their parents or careg [...]

    2. A little girl wants to know why people are asking her what she is, when she thought who she was, was the more important question. I love this children's book following a biracial girl through her struggles of figuring out who she is, in a world of people wanting to know what she is. I know that I have personally been asked WHAT I am, more times than I can count on all fingers and toes, time and time over. It started as a child when people notice my hair and skin wasn't like most of the girls who [...]

    3. Mixed Me is a great story to take children away from the race side of things. Mixie is bi-racial and does not understand when people ask "What are you?". She is human. As a teacher I will use this book to show that under our skin we are all the same- human and who we are matters most. Tiffany Catledge has six children and a degree in intercultural communications from Arizona State University. Tiffany Catledge's illustrations are bright and vibrant.

    4. A tale of pride and courage as Mixie shares her black and white heritage with young readers. Children will learn from Mixie to embrace their heritage whether they are mixed or not. Mixed Me is a great effort in helping children learn to cope and go beyond the barriers and challenges that they face due to being of mixed races/heritages/cultures. After all, it is not important WHAT you are but WHO you are.

    5. This book is about a little girl named Little Mixie who is mixed. She is both black and white and she is getting sick and tired of people asking her what she is. Her mom is white and her dad is black which makes her a little different from everyone else. In the story, she talks about how being different is fun and she is trying to be the best "Me" she can be.

    6. This picture book is an excellent choice of putting children through the perspective of growing up with two different colored parents and cultures. This is very common in today's society, so I feel it's important for children to understand different family perspectives. I would recommend this for lower elementary (k-2).

    7. Everyone is unique and each child comes from a different "MIX". Super cute book and a great conversation starter about differences for children.
