Identity is a big issue for children of bi-racial heritage and Isabell Monk does a wonderful job showing through Hope’s story that every child is special and should be proud of their mixed heritage. Most children with parents that are from different ethnicities or cultures can relate to Hope and probably have gone through some of the problems that society creates for people of mixed heritage. This is the perfect book for children to learn that they are wonderful, they are beautiful and they have every right to be proud of who they are! And in a way, children of non-mixed races learn a great deal of understanding, tolerance and an appreciation of children of mixed races and heritage.
