It’s cold outside, why can’t I wear a hoodie?
Why do people follow me at the store?
There’s no easy way to explain racism, especially to young kids, but the
sooner kids learn the truth, the better they can combat it and work to
help make changes.
This is a light, yet serious, story about perceptions. This book was
written to help parents start the race conversation with their children,
whatever their race or skin color may be.
Don’t avoid the race talk. As with many things in life, if you don’t talk to
your kids about race, someone else will. Someone else may shape your
child’s point of view on race, if you don’t.
