“Ethnic” Books – Please, Baby, Please


I need a new title for this series, I HATE writing “Ethnic” everyone is “ethnic.”  I don’t want to call in minority, or multi-cultural or … any suggestions?

:All this springs from an article I came across and posted about a few days ago that mentioned that most Early Childhood Teachers couldn’t name books with a non-white protagonist.  So I’m working to share examples of Kid-Lit with non-white characters and illustrations.

Please, baby, please is a super fun book full of predictable text and adorable illustrations.  It is playful without being cartoon-y.

I could picture moms and dads reading and enjoying the story and laughing along with there pre-schoolers.   This book is available in soft cover, hard cover and board book.
