A Normal Pig (ages 4-9)
I haven’t seen such a good #OwnVoices story about growing up multiracial/multicultural in a monoracial community since Maclear’s Spork. And this story goes one level deeper – into the importance of bringing BIPOC and third-culture kids into spaces where they aren’t always the other.

Validating for reluctant readers and kids with dyslexia, this early graphic novel is set in a dyslexic-friendly font. I think it’s intended for the 4-7 age range and now the Earthquakes are on to more dramatic storylines. We missed out on this cute story.
