In This World Together

Synopsis:

A multiracial child with an outgoing, curious nature narrates his own story about being born into the world to interracial parents concerned with how he will be treated. As he grows, children begin pointing out his physical differences, but his grandfather teaches him the importance of self-acceptance through his own childhood story. After hearing this, the child begins to accept himself for who he is and becomes more confident in making friends.

Self-acceptance is an important part of the human experience. Children who accept themselves as they are tend to believe in themselves, their decisions, and try their hardest to accomplish their goals. Self-acceptance is both motivating and empowering. It is a part of what forms future leaders.

Acceptance of others is also important. Understanding that families may look or think differently from one another is an important lesson to learn. Acceptance of others will help children to adapt to the ever-changing world around them.

One of children’s first experiences with other ideas and cultures is through books. We hope this book will help your children to feel accepted and help them to understand that families may look and operate differently from their own and that is okay.

In This World Together touches on the following theme collectively: interracial marriage, being a multiracial child in a multiracial family, bullying, self-esteem, understanding and self-acceptance.
