Staff Reviews


This hardcover picture book features the same content as the board book, and also includes some reference material at the back to assist parents and caregivers in having conversations around antiracism with children.  A wonderful choice for the classroom, and for children who have outgrown board books.

— From Inclusive Reading for Young Children

Kendi’s choice to speak directly to new parents in this format works quite well. His succinct, impactful prose makes for an accessible guide to anti-racism for everyone. Lukashevsky’s artwork elevates the text even more with brilliant color and charming details that will inspire readers to linger on each page. The timely and relevant anti-racist message so excellently delivered in this book makes it worthy of a place on all library shelves." -- School Library Journal
