Book of the Week: I Am Tan by Michele Rose

       I Am Tan, is a children’s book written by Michele Rose, aimed at helping young children, to better understand, race, color and stereotypes. The story follows a mixed-race child throughout the course of a day, as he seeks answers in regards to who he is, and how he should identify. It uses simple stereotypes that children from approximately five to nine years old, can easily understand. The author does hope that parents will expand upon this discussion, as their child grows older.
       The book is available through Amazon, and is now also available on audio, through Audible, Amazon and iTunes. The audiobook is fully dramatized, and is a great accompaniment to the e-book or paperback editions. Here is the link to I Am Tan:
