"The illustrations presented in this book offer a visual guide in understanding multiculturalism; pushing the limitations of self-identity with an overarching goal of attaining social humanism. An excellent resource for educators, this book will prompt classroom discussion amongst adolescents and across disciplines as we aim to transcend the boundaries of racial and gender paradigms. Reflections on my own multicultural upbringing were supported by the simple, yet powerful illustrations as I turned each page in Beth Chin’s book. "

"Creativity and imagery really can open new windows of understanding. The illustrations that Beth uses to explain the mixed race experience will certainly simplify ideas that many academics and advocates have been writing about for years. The simple combination of varying colors attached to a statement like "Multiracial people can range between any level of appearance between the two parents" is powerful and helps demonstrate society's misunderstandings related to phenotype in a much deeper way. There are so many diagrams that I would love to use with the parents of mixed race teens with whom I work, and I am certain many mixed race teens would immediately be able to better verbalize their experiences by referring to these visual explanations."
