About the Author

Jason Armstrong was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. After living there all his life, he decided to pursue his dream of opening his own wellness center, which led to him moving to Italy. While living in Italy with his two children, his love for writing, which had been dormant for sometime, resurfaced when his daughter innocently had an epiphany over some chocolate milk. Up until this time his writing had mainly consisted of poetry, of which a few poems were published in local corporate newspapers. After successfully opening up a wellness center in the Tuscan region of Italy, his love of wine met with an opportunity to launch his own startup importing wines and spirits into America, which lead him to moving back to New York. Currently he lives in Brooklyn, New York and spends his time pursuing his passion for teaching, running his wine importing business and publishing his first children’s book.

Anyone who's been paying a little attention to the literary world this last year might have noticed the call out for diverse books. There's so little literature about different races and cultures out there, and so I was happy to get a hold of this one. And what a lovely book it is! Sofia, like many children these days, comes from mixed heritages, and what better way to describe this than like a mixed chocolate drink - things mixed together and be oh so good! I enjoyed the way this book approaches a sometimes difficult topic for kids to understand and makes it clear how it only expands on the wonder of life. The illustrations are vibrant and add to the story nicely, while the writing itself is very easy even for the youngest kids to understand. By pulling in the special relationship between family and friends, children can easily sympathize with what's being said and will be able to relate it with their own families and surroundings. I especially enjoyed the rainbow idea--how the multiracial and mixture of cultures reaches into all corners of the family. My own children used this as a chance to talk about our family members, and they were happy to discover mixtures of their own. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
