Young Romina faced a daunting challenge - a classroom assignment to write an essay about her family's heritage. With a Mexican father and an Indian mother, she didn't know which to choose or how. She asks each parent to tell them about the cultures of their different backgrounds and discovers that along with their differences, there were many things they shared. Beautifully illustrated, this is a wonderful way to inspire an appreciation for diversity in the young reader in your house. For ages 4-8.
