This program is read by Taye Diggs and features a bonus interview with his son, Walker Diggs.

From Taye Diggs and Shane W. Evans comes Mixed Me!, another inspiring audiobook collaboration.


Mom and Dad say I'm a blend of dark and light:

"We mixed you perfectly, and got you just right."

Mike has awesome hair. He has LOTS of energy! His parents love him. And Mike is a PERFECT blend of the two of them.

Still, Mike has to answer LOTS of questions about being mixed. And he does, with LOTS of energy and joy in this charming story about a day in the life of a mixed-race child.

Reviews

โ€œMike's unerring sense of self (โ€œI'm a beautiful blend of dark and lightโ€) and the powerful love that surrounds him make this a rewarding, valuable read for families of any makeup.โ€ โ€”Publisher's Weekly, starred review


โ€œ[A] well-written, fun story of acceptance, friendship, and love. The text, colors, and design make this a good choice for read-alouds, but there are many details in the artwork (usually containing the word โ€œmixedโ€ or a synonym thereof) that make it good for one-on-one sharing.โ€ โ€”School Library Journal, starred review


โ€œSome kids call him โ€œMixed-up Mike,โ€ but the protagonist makes clear that he isn't mixed-up at allโ€”just mixed . . . Mike's confidence in his own appearance and coolness as well as the way he proudly embodies diversity, including a certain level of androgyny, make this a refreshing read. Evans' integration of rough-textured fabrics into lively and colorful mixed-media illustrations will make readers want to reach out and touch them . . . If all kids had the confidence about who they are that Mike has, what a wonderful world this would be.โ€ โ€”Kirkus Reviews, starred review


โ€œFor the millions of mixed-race Americans who have to endure the constant questioning of their identity, [Mike] has an answer: โ€œI'm a beautiful blend of dark and light, / I was mixed up perfectly, / and I'm JUST RIGHT!โ€ . . . The story's joyful message will resonate with multiracial readers and their families, leaving them with the cheeky takeaway: if you have a problem with me, it's your problem.โ€ โ€”Booklist
