The Antiracist Kid: A Book About Identity, Justice, and Activism by Tiffany Jewell, Nicole Miles

challenging hopeful informative inspiring reflective medium-paced


Tiffany Jewell’s work is inspiring. I first picked up The Antiracist Kid to see how it could work in my 4th/5th grade classroom. I originally read This Book is Antiracist a few years ago and have used some parts of it in the classroom as well. The Antiracist Kid takes the same content and breaks it down into language that is very accessible for 10-11 year olds. 

The book focuses on three topics: identity, justice, and activism. I can see this being used one section at a time throughout the entire school year. While it is very digestible for young readers, I think they would get even more out of it in tandem with discussions, written reflections, the partner texts mentioned at the end of the book, and more. 

Great read! I am very glad to have to this to share with more antiracist kids!
