BookList Review

Racism and Intolerance


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Children are often full of questions about the world, but sometimes the answers can be complicated or troubling. These titles in the Children in Our World series aim to help little ones grasp some of these complex issues by offering gentle explanations, which are further softened by amiable illustrations of round-faced kids. Racism and Intolerance uses general language to address a complex topic, but the lack of specific examples makes this title slightly less effective. The illustrations fill in some of the gaps, though they might raise more questions than answers. An emphasis on empathy How would you feel if that happened to you? will likely help little ones grasp the importance of equal treatment. The soft artwork and accessible, age-appropriate language make this well suited to curious kids in the picture-book set, though be ready to field lots more questions about some tough topics after the last page.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2018 Booklist
