Building a library

One of the things I've been working on over the years is gathering books on biracial/mulicultural experiences and books by authors of the same description. I look forward to posting more about my reading adventures in the future.

Recently, I purchased these four books.

I have read "What Are You" but didn't have a copy of my own. I especially like this book. It's geared more toward young adults, too, which makes it a perfect addition to your bookshelf if you have biracial children, but this book deserves its own post, later.

"I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla" is a parenting book for parents of black and biracial children (I'm assuming only biracial children of African American decent, but I don't yet know), but I include it here because it's been long regarded as an excellent book on parenting.

My bookshelves are generally arranged by topic, and much of what I have is shown below.

I LOVE this! I have been on a mission to create a library for my kids that represent both sides of their family (black and white). I hadn't thought to stock up on books for myself.
