Another series of Chole Perkins’ picture book. This book is about Snow White. Snow White is Folktale story that has been made with Disney movie as well. Cute Asian Snow White who is wearing kimono and living in Japanese style house. The details of illustration is amazing in this book. It has beautiful diversity inside. The author sure did great job with touching the aspects of diversity and racial representation.
Racial representation is always on the controversy. Children who doesn’t have basic information about racial representation can learn a lot from Chloe Perkins’ multicultural book. Seeing Snow White and Cinderella who has colored skin and traditional clothes from another country is very interesting and wonderful. Parents can teach their children the diversity in race and culture with this series, and I highly recommend this book.
