About the Book:
Hate crimes involving anti-Semitism, racial bigotry and sexual preferences are growing exponentially in all societies. This book is a simplistic attempt for young minds to understand how hate can be instigated. Through this story, children learn how to overcome prejudice, violence and celebrate each other’s differences. The answer to understanding others is through education starting at a young age. Now more than ever, the subject of this book is badly needed.
About the Author:
Stephanie (Stevi) Richardson was born and brought up in a Jewish household in the very segregated deep south. She later moved to Miami, Florida for college and remained to bring up her children while working in the Miami Dade County Public Schools for 43 years in a variety of positions. It was during those times that south Florida experienced an influx of immigrants that brought different beliefs, ideas and cultures with them. Much of Mrs. Richardson’s writings reflect this tapestry of many voices and points of view. In retirement, Mrs. Richardson traded the white sandy beaches of Florida for the white snow-capped mountains of Utah where she lives today with her husband, children and grandchildren.
