One Hundred Percent Me

Publisher: Bloom Books for Young Readers

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Great book for young readers to understand more about mixed race children as well as give those children confidence.

A little girl living in the San Francisco Bay area knows she is an individual even though people may not understand who she is because of her ancestry.  With a Puerto Rican father and Filipina mother, she looks different than other kids.  People say that she has one trait of her dad’s or another of her mom’s, but she thinks those are just hers.  Everything that makes her up makes her 100% Me.

This is a great children’s book that gives confidence to kids who are mixed race (because aren’t we all al little) as well as help kids understand that just because someone looks different doesn’t mean that, they are just different.  With colorful illustrations and descriptive imagery, this book is great for all young readers.  Some of the wording is a little more than very young readers would be able to handle.  It will be more appropriated for ages six and up. 

I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher.  The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
