Race & Racism Related Children’s Books

Race and racism may seem like too mature of a subject to discuss with children, but studies show that kids are never too young for the conversation. Children think about and notice race as early as three months old! Adults can help combat any bias a child may begin to develop, while also encouraging positive attitudes toward other races, simply by talking about race with the children in their lives.

Here are some suggested titles you can share with children to help build empathy and understanding, and to start necessary and important conversations about racial differences. For more parenting resources about race, click here.
