My multicultural Storybook

I love story books! 

I grew up walking to the library several times a week. I never missed a summer reading program... and when I “grew up” I was the presenter for summer reading programs for countless libraries. 

Obviously I love books...

But when I had my son there was a problem. 

None of the storybooks looked like him. 

Now I am a blonde hair blue eyed girl so there are thousands of books like me, but my husband is biracial his parents being from Germany and Africa, and our son is a mix of both us.

I found Goldilocks, or African safari... but I could not find any storybooks with biracial families. Obviously he can enjoy any book. But as I child I connected with the characters in the stories I read. 

I wanted him to enjoy story books where he could imagine himself as the main character.

So in true mom fashion... I wrote a series of books! The Adventures of Little Scout. They are your typical little kid book with cute rhymes and fun illustrations... except the children are from multicultural families.

I hope to make board books in the future but right now I'm going the eBook route with a downloadable pdf.

My top five moments this week:

1. My babysitter did a photoshoot with my son while I was at work! Best surprise ever!

2. It was 80 degrees outside so we spent lots of time outdoors.

3. I got a $20 gift card for Shutterfly from a friend! Hurray!

4. Little Charlie broke his first tooth!
You can see his tooth on the bottom right!

  1. SWEET!! I'm all about story books with biracial babies! Would have loved it for me growing up. It's funny how I feel the same way about books and dolls, etc for my baby girl. i want to find things that look like her (which is very hard!) Great idea and service to others to just come up with your own!

  2. Thank you so much! I just emailed you a copy of the book!
