The little girl's daddy is chocolate and her mommy is vanilla. She has her daddy's mouth and nose, and mommy's eyes and toes. The little girl is a mixture of both her daddy and mommy. Her brother is also a chocolate mixer and they both play together in their daddy's and mommy's shoes. The little girl's best friend is vanilla and they play together all day long, at school, at the beach, and laugh the day away. Her favorite cousin is chocolate and she is very happy when he comes to visit. Every day the little girl discovers new things that are chocolate mixers like her. Her daddy shows her a trick and she understands her favorite drink is a chocolate mixer like her. Her daddy tells her everyone is some kind of a mixer and her mommy tells her to look around to find more things that are mixers like her. The little girl is happy being herself. Chocolate Mixer by Jason Armstrong is an adorable story that tackles the subject of interracial families and their differences.
Though this is a difficult subject for children to understand, Jason Armstrong does a wonderful job of making it simple and easy for them through this story. The illustrations are bright and colorful and give clarity to the author's words and concept. The story is written in short and easy sentences and is a good way to help children understand the diversity in society. Chocolate Mixer is about self-acceptance and accepting others for who they are. It is definitely a good book for parents and tutors to use for storytelling and read-aloud sessions at home and in classrooms to help young readers understand mixed-race families in an engaging and interesting way.
