This is a great story with a biracial couple and their granddaughter. The cool thing is that it doesn‘t center race as the story, but rather feelings. I did buy this one. Anyone have book recs for a biracial 6 year old??

Nutmegnc @Tamra have you seen this one? And how old are your kids now?? 4d
Tamra @Nutmegnc I haven‘t! My kids are older now, 12 & 9, so I‘m scouting for chapter books. 😄 I do recommend this series for younger kids! (edited) 4d
Nutmegnc @Tamra thanks for the rec. it looks awesome! (edited) 4d

Review: The hello, Goodbye Window by Norton Juster, 2005, is a Caldecott Winner about a young girl visiting her grandparents and their magic window. It has beautiful abstract illustrations.
Blurb: I would use this book in my classroom for a read aloud, and follow up with apart project. Letting children create the characters in the story as their own family.

I would use this in my classroom because the children can relate to the relationship they have with someone.

This is a good traditional literature book for children. This book can be pretty relatable to kids. The theme of the story is about the loving relationship a young girl has with her grandparents and that is expressed through the illustrations too.

I would use this in a future classroom because the images would engage the children with how interesting the illustrations are & the children would really engage with the story itself.
