4.0 out of 5 stars nice book, 29 Jun. 2011
By

This review is from: Wait and See (Paperback)
There are a series of these books with the same little girl and family.
She is a mixed race girl portrayed in the book with a Black mum/white father.

The illustrations are very detailed and colourful of a multicultural UK city setting, and nice stories too that most children will relate to.
I do find that with some of the books portraying mixed race children do try to be a bit too "worthy", ie making sure they portray every other race, or stories hammering home the point of being "mixed race", at the expense of just wriitng a great story.
This isn't so bad but still pops in images of striking/protesting nurses (the mother is portrayed as a nurse in another book) and the parents friends include the above vast range of races/cultures etc...

It would be nice to see more UK written books for Black/Mixed race children available and especially with a positive inclusion of white mums/black fathers too, which is probably the most common situation for Afro-European children in the UK. Equally for younger toddlers, would be good to see some positive board books with black children as the focus.
