Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

This combination of reader-friendly language and bright bold illustrations makes even complex lessons about racism accessible to readers. The amount of information in The Antiracist Kid could seem overwhelming to some younger readers, so in her note "To Readers," author Tiffany Jewell suggests starting at the part that most interests you rather than trying to read it from beginning to end. This book can be read and discussed a few pages (or even a page) at a time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
