I have the last two. They are children's books, so they aren't going to be too deep. I like them,though, because they show a family similar to ours (i.e. white dad, black mom, and kid except I'm having a boy). Black White Just Right is just about the parents' differences and how the little girl gets a little of her parents' physical and personality traits, as well as interest. I enjoy it and will read it to my son.

ETA: I got the title of the last book mixed up with something else. I just have Black, White, Just Right.

I do not have such books, but I think it would help a biracial child help better understand and feel comfortable with themselves.

I think I will look around and invest in books like this not that it has been brought to my attention.
