Mixed Portraits of Multiracial Kids
This contest is now closed.
Mixed Portraits of Multiracial Kids, published by Chronicle Books, is the dream child of Kip Fulbeck, a multiracial professor, artist, filmmaker and writer who created the fantastic Hapa Project.
I came across this book online and loved the idea. So I knew InCultureParent readers would love it too. When I received the book, it delivered even more than my first glance online. In addition to awesome portraits of kids, together with their names and heritage, there is also a blurb from either the child or their parents about their identity. Here’s one I liked from Morgan’s mom: “Whenever someone asks, ‘What are they?’ about my kids, I always reply, ‘The United Nations.’ My little Mexi-Peruvi-Scott-Swiss-Vietnamese kids attract a lot of attention….My kids know both the joy of busting up a piñata at birthdays as well as opening a red envelope on Tet.” It’s a great book for all kids that shows the beauty of mixed families and it may be particularly special for multiracial kids who don’t see themselves represented frequently in books. I was fascinated to flip through, together with my kids, and look at all the different mixed heritages.
