One important way you can raise race-conscious children is to fill your home and surround them with diverse books with characters of color. As always, one of my very favorite ways to engage my kids in new learning is through the rich words and illustrations of quality children’s books. Therefore, as a follow-up to yesterday’s post titled How to Talk to Children About Race, I compiled a list of must-read children’s books with characters of color.
Additionally, check out this app: Pinna Children’s Audio Stories. This is an ad-free, screen-free, and worry-free compilation of quality audio stories and podcasts for kids ages 4-12. This app is a wonderful way to add more of a culturally/linguistically diverse (CLD) lens to people’s’ digital library. It has a category for culture and Black History Month which are amazing! My kids and I have just recently started listening to these during drives to and from activities, and it has been eye-opening and so much fun for us to do and discuss together.
