“Simply told and cleverly imagined, French Toast is a great starting point for talking to young children about race, diversity, and respect.”

Written by Kari-Lynn Winters
Illustrated by Francois Thisdale

Phoebe, the daughter of a white French-Canadian mother and a Jamaican English-speaking father, dislikes her school nickname of French Toast.
