Our libraries are opening. You can reserve a book online, and pick it up at the curb-side. Go to Great Schools.org, for their grade-based book lists to celebrate diversity, explore history from diverse vantage points. Included are stories in Spanish and English. They offer children both a window into other communities and a reflection of their own culture.
Reading stories can help pave the way for ongoing conversations, introduce a shared language about racial bias, and offer a kid-friendly way to help your child make sense of this moment. To dive deep into the work of African American children’s authors, check out this compilation of Coretta Scott King Award-winning children’s books.
