Dealing with racism

2017

by Jane Lacey and Venitia Dean

Sometimes you can sort out a problem on your own. But sometimes you need to ask for help. This book helps young children to make this decision and find out about and understand racism. It features seven case studies from children who have a range of racism problems from a girl who is being left out because she is Muslim to the new boy in school from another country who is struggling to fit in. The end of the book features a short playscript to act out and discuss. The book has engaging illustrations throughout. In this series case studies combine with sensible, practical advice to help children find out what to do in difficult situations.

IntersectionAllies: We Make Room for All

by Carolyn Choi, LaToya Council and Chelsea Johnson

IntersectionAllies isn’t just a book. It’s a mirror in which kids of all genders, races, sexualities, abilities, cultures, and origins can see their whole selves reflected, respected, and celebrated. In a world increasingly fractured by xenophobia, racism, ableism, homophobia and transphobia, and other forms of injustice, IntersectionAllies teaches the meaning of “community” to kids and parents alike, along with rhyming strategies to support and celebrate each other’s differences.--from Publisher's website
