We all know the insults, racial slurs and mean faces that children can make up and use against others. Or what about the innapropriate questions adopted children are asked over and over again? Is that your real mother? Where are you from? There is a whole list of them I’ve been told about. It is my hope that my little Mei Li book might just bring some awareness to some classrooms of adopted children. I will be donating copies to various schools around the country and some outside the USA. If you’d like your school or classroom to be considered, please comment or send me an email and your recommendation will go in the next pot for drawing.
Next week I’ll be mailing copies of Mei Li and the Wise Laoshi to:
Sharon Elementary, Indiana
Benfer Elementary, Texas
Bain Elementary, NC
Brighton Elementary, CO
Maple Elementary, OH
..and…Auchtertyre Primary School, Scotland!
Has your child been bullied or teased? And how have you handled it? This would be a great place to exchange stories and ideas on how to handle.
