Author Nadine Haruni discusses her children's book series "Freeda the Frog"

Our kids are growing up in a world driven by technology and media, where sensitive subjects like race and inequality are permeating the airwaves. Gold Mom’s Choice Award-winner and author Nadine Haruni is addressing these hot button issues with acceptance and understanding in Freeda the Frog & Her New Blue Family. Appropriate for ages 3 to 11, the book encourages children (and their parents) to be sensitive to people of all different racial, ethnic, religious and gender backgrounds—and to celebrate the blended family.
