Hi library friends,

I have a friend whose son and his wife are adopting 4 children, ages 6-11, from Africa.  They are Caucasian and have 4 children, ages 5-15.  My friend (the grandmother) is worrying about possible unkind comments that might be said to her new grandchildren or to the other grandchildren.  She is wondering if there were any children's books that presented how to deal with prejudice and discrimination that she could share with them.  Can you think of any that I could suggest to her?  Thanks for your help!
