THAT’S MY MUM (BILINGUAL)-Language Lizard
by Henriette Barkow
In this story, winner of Best New Picture Book by Child Education 2002 (Scholastic Ltd), Mia tells the reader about her experience being a child of mixed heritage. How does she overcome the prejudice of being judged by the color of her skin? What will she do when strangers mistake her mother for her babysitter? It’s a warm tale that will inspire children to take pride in their heritage, and the uniqueness of their families. The simple text and beautiful illustrations are great for provoking thought and discussion in the classroom.
