Here’s a story all littles can understand: that they are a mixture (mixer) of their mommy and daddy.
The children in Chocolate Mixer, happen to be brown like chocolate milk (and who doesn’t love chocolate milk??) even though they are a mixture of a white (vanilla) mother and a chocolate (Black) father. The very BEST line in the easy to read rhyming book is the line from Dad:
“He sat me on his lap and said “my rainbow you see” we are all some kind of mixer, just look at a family.”
Isn’t that cute? Even the youngest kiddos can look at families (possibly their own) and see how everyone is different shades of color, just like a rainbow. What a great way to discuss similarities rather than differences with the littles. There are SO many teachable moments in this book!
