    • 4★ #WeNeedDiverseBooksWhy do I look like I do? What kid hasn’t looked in a mirror and wondered why something about them is different from the rest of the family? But it probably doesn’t occur to most kids to think that somebody else would notice that.This is a colourful, appealing picture book with a simple story about Violet, a young girl on her first day going to a new school. Her mother drops her off and waves goodbye (red hand out the car window). "All the way to school, Violet’s hea [...]


    • I can really see this book being of benefit to families where they have a mixed race family member, I hadn't really thought before about how hard it may be for them to feel that they fit in and this book deals with the subject really well. It shows them that whilst they are different (in Violet's case her dad is blue and her mum is red and she is the only one like that at school with mixed parents), she is unique and a mixture of both her mum and dad and loved just as much as everyone else, 4 st [...]


    • With butterflies in her stomach, Violet braves her way through the first day of school, only to be left wondering 'Why am I Violet?' by the end of it.Violet goes to school with blue kids, yellow kids, and red kids, but no where does she see any other purple kids, like herself. When one of the other kids asks why her dad is blue, and Violet isn't, she is left worrying about it. Luckily, her Mom knows just how to explain it to her.Being that my daughter comes from two different backgrounds, I felt [...]


    • My children and I liked this book for its originality—both in the story and the colourful quirky illustrations. By using the metaphor of colour to show being different is okay, the author has allowed for its application to all differences, not just skin colour. It could encompass physical and intellectual differences, multi-cultural and linguistic differences, as well as religious differences.The story is a great way to introduce young children to tolerance and acceptance, and also to help the [...]


    • Violet is happy to go to school with her red, blue, and yellow friends but then someone asks her--if her dad is blue, why isn't she blue? She asks her mom (red) and using paints, her mom explains that Violet is a beautiful mixture of red and blue with to include bits of both her mother and her father. Red and blue make violet. And what's important is what is inside the skin, not its color.Very simple picture book which explains in very simple terms a complex issue.


    • This is a simple way to talk about race. We are all the same inside. Our Dad might be blue and our mom is red and that makes VIOLET. Some yellow kids, both parents are yellow. If they would have hit on adoption too that would be awesome. My mom and Dad are yellow but I am red. Still nicely done!


    • This adorable children's story explores the challenging reality of having mixed heritage, by delving into the interaction with school peers who may look differently in an authentic manner.


    • Sooner or later a child of a mixed race couple is going to run into the things that Violet does on her first day of school. Children are used to certain things, and when those certain things are different, be it food, or clothes, or skin color, they have questions.Told in a very easy to understand story, Violet learns that when you mix Red with Blue you come up with Violet, and that is why her mother is red, and her father is blue, and she is violet.Oh, if only the rest of the world could take t [...]


    • All the way to school, Violet’s heart was pounding. She could see all the kids making their way to the front doors. There were red kids, yellows kids, and blue kids…and then there was Violet.I am always on the lookout for books that promote diversity and those that deal with issues children may experience in a non-confrontational way. This book is beautifully illustrated and has an important message for children (and adults!) about who you are inside being the most important thing about you, [...]


    • ~Disclaimer~ I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This book is about a little girl named Violet. She is nervous about making friends in her new school. Her day goes by quickly and she ends up having fun. When her father picks her up one of her class mates asks her why her dad is blue and she isn't. Violet doesn [...]


    • Violet is a picturebook written by Tania Duprey Stehlik and illustrated by Vanja Vuleta Jovanic. Violet is happy that her father has come to pick her up after her first day at a new school. But as she races over to meet him, one of the other kids asks, How come your Dad is blue and you're not?" Violet has never even thought about this before. Her mother is red, and her father is blue -- so why isn't she red or blue? Why is she purple? Upset and confused, Violet goes to her mother. Using paints, [...]


    • I love the idea of this book, that Violet is so-called because she has a blue parent, and a red parent, and together they make a violet child. This is a really child-friendly way of addressed the fact that people have different heritages and therefore may look different and be of mixed race. I love the last page, where Violet assertively and proudly tells us: "I am Violet!" Aesthetically, I found that there was so much going on in the illustrations of each double page spread, that it detracted f [...]


    • Thank you Net Galley for the copy to review.Violet is concerned about making friends at school and all goes well until the end of the day when a schoolmate questions why her father is blue and she is not. Telling her mom about what happened, her mom explains that she is red, her dad is blue and Violet is a lovely combination of both.This is not a complex, deep story about mixed racial children, but a nice launching pad for further discussion. Self-acceptance is explained in a simple, understanda [...]


    • I will be honest, I’m not sure what to think of this book. Violet is purple. Her mom is red, and her dad is blue. She is a little bit of both of them. She never thinks about any of this until people are confused by her blue dad. I know it's supposed to a book on being yourself, but i think some of it gets mixed up. It’s a bit convoluted. I think I need to hear others opinions on this title. I will say, I do like the artwork, as it’s not typical children’s picture book artwork.


    • This is a wonderful book for children who identify as being different from their classmates and friends. It celebrates differences and acceptance of individual identity. The pictures are colorful and fun and slightly *different* than what you may have encountered before Just like Violet.I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.







    • A little girl, whose skin is violet, learns to appreciate herself for who she is. Unique, surrealist illustrations.


    • The cover attracted me to this book. Campy, colorful drawings of butterflies, leaves, flowers, and designs surround the word Violet and the picture of an extremely skinny little girl whose skin is purple. The story is fairly simple. Violet begins school and is nervous about making friends. The first day goes well until her father comes to pick her up. Then a girl asks Violet why she isn’t blue like her father. At home, Violet’s mother, who is red, explains that Violet is a mixture of the two [...]


    • violet is a girl who lives in a world where all of the people she knows are primary colours. one day her dad picks her up from school and a friend asks why her dad is blue and she is violet. violet is a little upset by this and begins to question why she is different from all of the kids at school and even from her own parents, she goes home to ask her parents and her mom, who is red, sits her down and tells her that it’s not a bad thing to be different from the kids at school. she puts blue a [...]


    • Originally published in Canada.Important concept. I wasn't in love with the execution. Young children often need explicit explanation about things -- including somewhat taboo topics like race and biracial identity. I found Violet a pretty flat character and at no point does she find peer solidarity of any kind (from mono-racial or bi-racial peers). In addition, her parents have very little presence in the book. We see disembodied arms or hands and a few words, but not "whole" people. For childre [...]


    • On Violet's first day of school, she finds that the kids are red, yellow, and blue. Where are the kids that are like her - violet? Her mother helps her through her fears of being the odd one out and she learns how sometimes blue and red makes violet, just like her.This is a visually interesting way to teach children about how people come in all sorts of different races. It's a simple concept and a metaphor that children this age can understand, without getting too preachy. The story is not lost [...]


    • This story about a little girl (Violet) who heads off to school and is asked why her colour doesn't match that of her dad (who's blue) and her mom (who's red) is an excellent story which went over very well with all of my students. Whether you are attempting to explain the concept of mixed-race to a primary school audienc, or simple principles of genetics to all children the story evokes these notions in an accessible and empowering way. Where the picturebook falls down, however, is in the illus [...]


    • i sorta agreed to review some books and this is one of the ones that i was sent. it's a kids book that uses color theory to explain mixed race. my kid likes it (although i think it is intended for an older audience). i like the illustrations - kind of gothic-style with bits of bright, pretty things.


    • 'Violet' is an endearing picture book about a little girl who is purple. It is something difficult for her to understand, because all the kids in her class are blue, red, or yellow. Even her mother and father are blue and red. So why is she purple?'Violet' is a great book to discuss with biracial kids who may question their identity or feel out of place in their community.
