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.
We are using this as one of the resources to begin talking about racism with our 5 year old.
a kids book about racism gave our family a new tool to talk with our children about privilege, current events and how to pursue anti-racism in our work and play. Thank you!
I’d recommend this to any parent who is trying to open the conversation about racism with his/her children. It’s simple and straightforward so your child won’t lose interest. Also great for lending to other parents.
Excellent book. My husband read the book to our 7 year old son. Our son enjoyed the book but asked his father "Dad, if I could do the best backflip in the world, would a racist still hate me?" He still couldn't fathom of such an intense hatred for someone just because of how they look. More conversations are to be had.
This has helped me to open up the conversation with my 5 year old about what racism is, how to recognize it and how to stand up for people.
Loved the imagery, fonts, and message.
I love this book because it's written in terms a child will understand, but the content is meaningful for adults of all ages.
Received A Kid's Book About Racism, Creativity, and Failure as the first book set in our subscription. They are engaging and well written.
My first set i received a duplicate which meant I was missing a book. They were happy to immediately ship a replacement and instructed me to gift or donate the spare. I would 11/10 recommend.
PERFECT information. So digestible for my 5 year old. Can’t wait for our next books!
I bought the 2 books-per-month subscription for my 8-yr old niece. The first two books she received were A Kid's Book About Racism and A Kid's Book About Creativity. She's super into her tablet and YouTube, etc., but SHE LOVED THESE BOOKS! Thanks for sending out the book about racism in her first order, very pertinent to our current time. Thank you!
A Kids Book About Racism
My 9 year old son found it very helpful during this pandemic and distant learning. He often cries when his emotions take over. Whenever he’s upset or nervous even when he’s overjoyed. I appreciate this book very much. Considering both parents in the house have also had battles with anxiety. I appreciate this book breaking it down to kids so they can begin to understand more about their feelings. Thank you.
This book is a great place to start the conversation about racism with your children of all ages. The author has broken down what racism is and what it can look and feel like in a way young kids can understand. It also emphasizes the importance and benefits of celebrating our differences. I read it with my kindergartener and preschooler and each time they ask new questions and we have a different dialogue. I believe his book should be in homes and schools everywhere. Thank you for this invaluable resource!
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.
A Kids Book About Racism
Talking about racism with your kid, and even some adults, can be so very daunting...especially if you're white and are unable to understand how it feels because you have never had to experience it. This book empowered me....it gave me the words I did not have to help teach my children about this very heavy topic. I am so thankful for the author and for this organization! It is vital to start these conversations with our kids while they're young so that we have more loving and inclusive generations who celebrate and invite differences in others.
Loved the book - it was simple but informative and silly and light while addressing a very heavy topic. Read it with my seven year old and while it did not give the entire picture of how ugly racism is in the United States, it started the conversation and helped him understand it is serious and it is something to be aware of, something we all have an obligation to change.
I read this book with my stepson (6) and it helped me have a discussion with the events of today in an easier manner. It takes a complex and difficult topic and provides an avenue for open and easier discussion. Additionally, the narration allows children to have a connection with the author, as it reads like other books.
No fluff, but gentle. This will be used with students in our school.
No fluff, but still gentle. This book will be used with students in our school.
If you’re looking for a guide to help you start essential conversations with your child about racism, this is it. Highly recommend.
This is a great way to start one of many conversations about racism and about becoming anti racist. My children are 7 and 11 and this was written in a way to connect and understand the problem. I’m passing it along to other families to start the conversation, too.
