Having your children at home for an extended amount of time provides parents/guardians with an incredible opportunity to drive more of the curriculum that emphasize issues most important for our beautiful brown babies. This young readers bundle was curated with the intention of challenging our young readers to think critically about the ideas of race, social justice, and empathy.
Your first two books in the bundle are:
Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award-Winning Stamped from the Beginning
by Jason Reynolds and Ibram Kendi.
Two award-winning authors in their own right, have joined together to offer your kids “a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative that shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas–and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.”
This is a book that we encourage parents and young ones to read together while school is out. It’ll offer a great opportunity for a much needed guided discussion between parents and children that’ll also offer some great screen-less bonding time.
Woke: A Young Poet’s Call to Justice
by Mahogany Browne, Elizabeth Acevedo, Jason Reynolds, et al
Theodore Taylor’s bright, emotional art will inspire kids to create their own art and poems to express how they see justice and injustice.
Woke is the perfect book for parents to use when engaging their children in a conversation about injustice and encouraging them to use their own creativity and voice to speak out about the issues that concern them most.
If used properly, the convergence of art and technology presents an opportunity children to find both purpose and empowerment. How can your kids spend this time thinking of others and expressing themselves in a positive and impactful manner?
