Hello, my name is Taku and I believe we can all be friends no matter what we look like or where we have come from. My new book Multicultural Me is for kids just like you and has funny cartoons to make talking about friendship lots of fun! Multi-Me Radio is here so I can read my book to you, share my stories and answer all the questions you have sent me e.g. Why did I move from Zimbabwe to Australia? Why did I write this book? How tall am I? (Yes, someone has asked me that!)
I hope you enjoying listening and I hope we can be friends. Find the e-book on iBooks and the paperback version on www.multiculturalme.com.au.
