Marisol McDonald Doesn’t Match/Marisol McDonald No Combina by Monica Brown Ph.D. and Sara Palacios. Marisol McDonald has flaming red hair and nut-brown skin. Polka dots and stripes are her favorite combination. She prefers peanut butter and jelly burritos in her lunch box. To Marisol, these seemingly mismatched things make perfect sense together. Other people wrinkle their nose in confusion at Marisol—can’t she just choose one or the other? Try as she might, in a world where everyone tries to put this biracial, Peruvian-Scottish-American girl into a box, Marisol McDonald doesn’t match. And that’s just fine with her. (Children’s Book Press, 2013. 32 pgs.)

Half and Half by Lensey Namioka is a fiction book about a girl who is half Scottish and half Chinese. The young girl, Fiona looks a lot more like her father who is Chinese so everyone just assumes she is more interested in her Chinese background rather than her Scottish background. Even Fiona begins to question who she is. This book is good for identity roles because she is trying to figure out her true background and cherish them both.
