Excellent Book

This book really broke racism down into a truly understandable way for my 6 year old.

Love this book!

I love how this book explain in a very simple, kid appropriate way but also leaves things open for discussions. I read it with my 2nd grade students and we had a great discussion throughout the entire book. Some students knew and understood the content and others were surprised to find that others were discriminated against based on the color of their skin. It was the perfect way to start and continue the conversation around racism.

Almost perfect.

Fabulous. My kids (7 and 9) were a little too old, but maybe I am taking for granted that they grasp the concept of feminism and racism already. I wish we had had them when were younger.

All parents need this book!

Our 1st grade teacher recommended it and it has given us the tools we needed to start the conversation with all three of our children (8yo, 6yo, 4yo). Getting the one about Depression next!
