Finally, a book featuring a multi-ethnic family that is not about “being” a multi-ethnic family. Instead, Oscars Half Birthday follows Oscar, his mom,dad and big sister on a very regular outing on a special day. If you’re thinking of ideas for a party then follow Oscar’s family as they pack lunch,take a walk, observe the city and nature then meet friends to celebrate Oscar.
If you believe there is beauty in simplicity you will adore this colorfully illustrated but not overly produced book. There are a few details–Dad’s low rise pants and mom’s cornrows. This book is a cherished book for us by a loving friend of our unique family.
