Celebrate Marisol’s uniqueness by clicking HERE to download a creative activity guide, the perfect compliment to Monica Brown’s lively Marisol McDonald Doesn’t Match. In it, the reader further explores Marisol’s bi-racial world of peanut butter and jelly burritos, athletics, and artistic expression.

Speaking of artistic expression, enjoy dressing a Marisol McDonald paper doll in two ways – one being with the brilliantly colored Peruvian clothing designed by illustrator Sara Palacios and the other with clothing to be colorfully designed by the child.

Also, this guide offers a very special puzzle-making activity called “Pieces of You,” a clever lesson in considering and appreciating one’s own multifaceted characteristics. The activity page consists of a number of blank puzzle pieces. The child is asked to decorate each puzzle piece with a unique aspect of themselves. When her illustrations are complete, the child is asked to cut out the puzzles pieces and interlock them together. What a wonderful way to illustrate how the various aspects of the child’s individuality puzzle together to create a whole, perfectly complete person deserving of all things wonderful – just like Marisol!
