Am I Blue or Am I Green? / Azul o verde. ¿Cuál soy yo?, a bilingual English-Spanish picture book written by Beatrice Zamora and illustrated by Berenice Badillo. In this poetic and uplifting story for children, the flags of Mexico and the United States serve as a metaphor for the resilience and beauty of bicultural life. Complex themes, including identity and the challenges of being a family with mixed citizenship/immigration status, are presented in a way that is empowering and child-sensitive. It is the story of every U.S, person of color whose famly roots immigrate from other countries.
