by Dr. Darlene Powell Hopson and Dr. Derek S. Hopson.Fireside Press; $12.



Direct and clear, this book offers a positive, realistic approach to preparing African-American children to become productive and self-respecting (actually their advice holds true for children of any minority). Chapters focus on modeling, racial identification, sexuality, day-care, and family relations. Written by African-American psychologists who are husband and wife, Different and Wonderful also provides an insiderís view to African Americansí discussions with each other about concerns for their children.
