I think a lot of you know by now that I’m a big BIG proponent of kid’s literature as a tool for approaching difficult subjects like race and identity. I strongly and deeply believe children’s books offer adults and kids together not only one of the easiest and most enjoyable, but also thoughtful, artful and informed entry points into conversations about tough subjects. The right book can open up adult-child thinking in all sorts of new ways, inspiring us to ask important questions and taking our minds to places they haven’t gone before. Powerful stuff, right?
