With illustrations from Mt Hawthorn resident Jason Trevenen, the book is based on an eight-verse poem that aims to encourage children to celebrate different cultures and friendship.
Crowd funding of $15,000 is needed by the April 21 deadline to get the book to the printing stage.
Mr Trevenen has worked on a dozen animated Disney movies and teaches drawing at Murdoch University.
He also tours schools and small communities in WA, teaching children how to draw cartoons.
�I don�t know a lot of other books like this,� Mr Trevenen said.
�It�s a good starting point for schools to talk about multiculturalism.
�We�ve incorporated a number of different cultures in this book.�
Ms Scrutton said she had talked to many students who have dealt with bullying because of cultural differences.
�Some of my students have told me about bullying and the struggle to find friends,� she said. �I believe friendship and respect should be discussed with young people from early on.
�I hope Multicultural Me encourages our teachers, parents and leaders to do so in a fun and colourful way.�
Schools can arrange for Ms Scrutton or Mr Trevenen to visit them during the week of International Youth Day on August 12. To help crowd fund the book by buying a copy, visit www.pozible. com/multiculturalme.
