Twins Nia and Jay have unique differences about them. Twins are supposed to look similar, if not just alike. However, Nia has dark skin and dark hair, and Jay has light skin and blonde hair. The story is told from Jay and Nia's point of view, and they share their experiences of looking different from each other. In the end, they both learn to love their differences and heritage. The true beauty of this book is in the language. The characters use imaginative descriptions to describe themselves. "I am mixed with all kinds of goodies like chocolate chunks and marshmallow delights." The illustrations are also beautifully done in vivid colors which add to the text. This story of Jay and Nia echoes themes of pride and heritage. This is more than just a book about mixed races, it is s a celebration of diversity and self-esteem.… (mere)

I Am Mixed is a trade book about two siblings who are mixed and the benefits of being mixed. The illustrations in I Am Mixed is colorful and detailed. Just like the title of the book the illustrations mix well with each other. Teachers can use this book in the classroom by teaching the purpose of mix cultures. My interpretation of this book is that people should embrace mixed people and see the benefits of it.

I really enjoyed this book and believe that all children who live in more than one home should read this book. The story tells the perspective from twin siblings, Jay and Nia, and mom and dad. While the children divide their time between living in two different homes, they are always reminded that their parents love them despite the fact that they do not live together. The author included simple rhymes on each page in order to have a smooth pace as you read. I enjoyed that the author included Nia getting questioned while at school from a friend "you don't live with both your mom and dad?" because, as a child of divorced parents, I know how frustrating and annoying that can be to explain to others. I enjoyed the theme of the book that expressed to children, that even if you live in multiple homes love is love and family is family.… (mere)
