With our 24/7 news cycle and constant access to the latest headlines, the world can be a scary place. Now imagine you're a child trying to make sense of it all!

That's where books from the Children in Our World series can help. Each book uses relatable comparisons, carefully researched text, and striking illustrations to help kids understand the many difficulties that children just like them face in the world today. In Racism and Intolerance, children can get answers to questions like: "What does it mean to be a racist--or intolerant?" and "How can I help?" Children will begin to understand the way others struggle with these issues and become empowered to make a difference. Award-winning illustrator Hanane Kai uses a deft hand to create powerful illustrations that help children visualize the people impacted by poverty, hunger, war, racism, and more. All of the images are sensitively rendered and perfectly suited for younger children. These books are an excellent cross-curricular resource--use them to explore important issues and tie them into discussions about food, wealth, compassion, empathy, and current affairs.

Review quote

"This book covers serious subject matter in a gentle way for children. "Racism" and "intolerance" are explained with examples kids can relate to. The author discusses how prejudice could manifest at school. The second half of the book is about what can be done to change things. Kids are given easy ways that they can make a difference. They are also instructed to tell an adult if they experience racism themselves. I like how the illustrations are inclusive, with different people in every picture. It's an important subject, and I think this book does a great job of both explaining and empowering."
