Books that help with the
hard conversations

Racism, feminism, and belonging — these are some pretty tough topics to discuss with your kids. But our kids are ready to have the conversation. They’re at that age when they soak up EVERYTHING, so there’s never been a better time than now to bond with them over a book and teach them something that will make them feel empowered.

Designed to empower

As a dad of a blended family (4 white kids, 2 brown kids), Jelani Memory knew that racism was a topic he’d have to address. Discussing such a heavy topic with his kids, though, seemed almost impossible — and a little uncomfortable. So he decided to write A Kids Book About Racism.

A kids book about

This is a book about anxiety. Having anxiety doesn’t just mean you feel nervous sometimes or need to calm down. It means having an uncontrollable feeling that gets in the way of what you normally do. This book explores what anxiety is like and what life can look like when you’re able to manage to live with anxiety.


A kids book about

This is a book about empathy. Feelings aren’t always easy, especially when they are other people’s. This book teaches kids (and grownups) how to feel “with” someone, and not just for them.
