Book Review - Children in Our World: Racism and Intolerance

Children in Our World: Racism and Intolerance

About the Book
With our 24/7 news cycle and constant access to the latest headlines, the world can be a scary place. Now imagine you're a child trying to make sense of it all!

That's where books from the Children in Our World series can help. Each book uses relatable comparisons, carefully researched text, and striking illustrations to help kids understand the many difficulties that children just like them face in the world today. In Racism and Intolerance, children can get answers to questions like: "What does it mean to be a racist--or intolerant?" and "How can I help?" Children will begin to understand the way others struggle with these issues and become empowered to make a difference. Award-winning illustrator Hanane Kai uses a deft hand to create powerful illustrations that help children visualize the people impacted by poverty, hunger, war, racism, and more. All of the images are sensitively rendered and perfectly suited for younger children. These books are an excellent cross-curricular resource--use them to explore important issues and tie them into discussions about food, wealth, compassion, empathy, and current affairs.

My Take on the Book

Racism comes in so many types and may people, maybe even you have been effected. Being treated differently because of the color of our skin color, parents or country is not acceptable today but our kids also need to know what this means and why this should not continue and this book does a tremendous job at tackling the topic head on. The book illustrates powerfully the experiences of black families and it really allows you to open up lines of communications with your kids about this important topic!
