This book is about celebrating who we are and embracing our differences with acceptance and joy.
Sometimes I’ll overhear people say negative things about a person because of the color of their skin, perceived faith or ethnicity, or any other myriad of reasons. When this happens, I immediately think of the people in my life, the different races, cultures and faiths that make up our one beautiful family. More often than not, they are talking about someone like a person I know and love.
I could not find a book that looked like my family; definitely not one that celebrated our differences and our love for each other. This hole in children's books became even more urgent when my daughters began raising children of their own. So I wrote one! And with the talented, creative power of Damon Guthrie as illustrator, we have created a unique window into the best of the human family.
Now, we need your help to get "If You Looked At Me" into the hands of children everywhere.
