  1. Sharon, this list has grown so much! I meant to pass on my own list a while ago (http://www.thegiftedblog.com/2011/12/gift-guide-books-on-being-bicultural.html) when there were just a few on this page. Thank you for all the recommendations. My cousin and her husband are expecting their Japanese-White-Indian baby in December (yay!) and I'm starting to put together a mental list of books I want to give them.

    We haven't gotten to meet yet but our sons are at the same preschool...will look for a chance to say hi. : )
