  1. Thank you for the above mentioned article. I can’t remember now how I ended up getting to your blog – but I somehow landed on your “when white people don’t know …” post (humbling!), and then realizing that you too are in an intercultural marriage got me clicking on the “Raising kids in two cultures” post. Anyway, thanks again! I have two girls – biracial, as I am married to a “mid western cornfield” boy – and will take all the help I can get in raising our girls with a healthy balance of both the East and the West that they are part of. Do you have recommendations for books that appeal to biracial children?

    1. Glad you liked it! How old are your girls? There’s a great early reader series that my daughter loved called Amy Hodgepodge. Here’s a small list of multicultural kids books I have on Amazon. Personally, I loved the “Everbody…” series.
