Mom and dad reading a book for baby

If you're still finding a hard time talking to your kids about racism, we've chosen five books that will help every parent through navigating America's history. It's up to us to ensure we raise a responsible generation who recognizes the pain of the past and looks forward to being a part of building a great future! 

Whistle For Willie 

This book is perfect for even the tiniest new babes. Peter tries to whistle for his dog, Willie and explores the town. While this seems like an odd choice,Whistle for Willie is part of a beautiful series following Peter and gives your children an intro to his life and how he explores our world includingPeter's Chair,The Snowy Day,Goggles and another choice from the list,A Letter To Amy

A Letter To Amy 

Our friend Peter is back and he wants to invite a friend to his birthday party. It's a girl, and while the story takes an unexpected turn, it opens the door to a conversation about multiple relevant topics in a way your children will welcome. 



This book brings racial and class diversity to the forefront and teaches a great lesson of how perspective means everything! You'll love this read for all ages! 


The Youngest Marcher 

This book is great for all ages but may really set in for school-aged children. It is the true story of Audrey Faye Hendricks, one of the smallest bodies with a big voice in the civil rights movement! 

And what would our list be without our current history!? 

Kamala + Maya's Big Idea


A beautiful, empowering picture book about two sisters who work with their community to effect change, inspired by a true story from the childhood of the author’s aunt, Kamala Harris, and mother, lawyer and policy expert Maya Harris.

Wonderful to highlight equality for kids. Consider taking your game to the next level and linking to a Black owned bookstore for purchase rather than Amazon. <3
