9781452083971: Like You and Me

I will never forget that day. I was nine years old when a lady asked me, "Are you "Pashtun" or "Tajik"?

Pashtuns and Tajiks are the predominant ethnic groups in Afghanistan and yet I did not know which group I belonged to so I answered, "Afghan!"

I was puzzled with this strange question and, not knowing the concept of ethnicity, I rushed home to clarify this issue. I questioned my mother, "Am I Pashtun or Tajik?"

My mother demanded that I tell her what my response was to the lady who asked me the question about my ethnicity.  Afghan! I repeated my answer to my mother. My mother peered deep into my curious eyes that were waiting for the right answer and responded, "You are absolutely right, you are an Afghan and nothing else".

This was an important lesson because it showed me at an early age that ethnicity does not determine who we are. Underneath all our beautiful diverse attributes we should be equally respected for being human.

My book, "Like You and Me",is a place for children to explore and celebrate the vast diversity in our world.

As an early childhood educator and a parent, I believe that we play a significant role in developing sense of acceptance, appreciation, and love in our children. The earlier children are exposed to diversity in a positive light the more it will help our children admire the beauty in every culture.

Children are not born to be prejudiced; I've known this since I was nine years old.
