cover art of VioletThis picture book is fabulous not only for its adorable artwork, but because of the message. Violet is a story about being of mixed heritage, and the confusion this can cause for some children. It is a great way to help a child of mixed heritage see there are others like themselves, or to discourage racism among young children.

Thank you to the author Tania Duprey Stehlik and the illustrator Vanja Vuleta Jovanovic.
