This is an excellent book for preschool to 2nd grade kids. And yes your preschooler does need to know about racism. It should be in every classroom and on the bookshelf of every middle class white kid that benefits from racism daily.
Our first book was about racism and was timely discussion with all that had been going on. I read it to my 6 and 4 year old. My 6 year old was able to follow along and asked questions. We hope to engage more thoughtful discussions as we get more books
I love that reading it meant the conversation was then led by my kids & their own questions rather than us sitting down to talk to them.
When I placed the order, this was before the protests began. And the first book we received was A Kid's Book About Racism. It couldn't have possibly been more timely to have this book to help us talk about what's going on with current events.
A great, straightforward book to deliver a very important message, especially in the current world climate. Thank you for making books for our children on such important topics.
