The Antiracist Kid: A Book About Identity, Justice, and Activism by Tiffany Jewell, Nicole Miles
I love this book. We could discuss each page in the classroom and all would be valuable. Children learn all different concepts from personal (identity) to general (society, community).
"You know who you are!
You know who you are better than anyone else!
You are the one who gets to choose how you identify!
You get to decide how much you will share with others!
You are learning more about yourself and your history every day.
No one can tell you who you are.
It does not feel good when other people try to tell you who you are.
You have a right to be yourself.
You have a right to be protected, to be heard, to be seen, to be respected, and to be a part of your community and society..."
The book is well put together. Goes from passive to active (learning about it, knowing how to act, to be heard, to advocate, and to repair). We all make mistakes. You can repair too: to listen and to be heard.
The design is amazing including 130 vibrant pages with a pleasant font. Recaps of highlight information at the end of each chapter and conversation starters for a deeper discussion.
