Mixed Portraits of Multiracial Kids

By

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.

So let’s get down to it. Here’s what you need to do to win:
