New Picture Book from Taye Diggs Aims to Help Misfits

New Picture Book from Taye Diggs Aims to Help Misfits

We're always a little skeptical when a star decides to become an author, but this one has us intrigued: Private Practice star Taye Diggs says he grew up "feeling really awkward, like I didn't fit in,” because he was one of a very few dark-skinned kids in his neighborhood. Now a father himself, the actor's newly released picture book, Chocolate Me, "tells the story of a dark-skinned, curly-haired boy who is made fun of because of his appearance." Diggs hopes the book will be just the beginning; he wants to create an "ethnic Disney" that encourages all kids to feel accepted and comfortable with themselves.

Have you ever wished that the characters, books, media personalities and toys your kids are growing up with were more ethnically diverse?
