In my post, We Need to Stand Up and Be the Village for Parents of Black Children., I discussed various ways to combat racism particularly for white parents like myself. Many parents requested book ideas which is a FANTASTIC idea! So here are some really great books I would recommend for every age group.
Baby-5 years old
Chidi Only Like Blue: An African Book of Colors
The Sneetches and Other Stories
We’re Different, We’re the Same (Sesame Street)
Henry’s Freedom Box: A True Story from the Underground Railroad
Global Babies (This one was suggested by a reader on our Facebook page. She said their copy is WELL worn!)
Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom
Warriors Don’t Cry: A Searing Memoir of the Battle to Integrate Little Rock’s Central High
Shooting Kabul (The Kabul Chronicles)
Hope you find something for your child from this list! As always, please leave a comment on our Facebook page with feedback! I’d love to hear your favorites!
