A great way to share your commitment to becoming antiracist is to give a child on your gift list a book written by or illustrated by an African American. There are countless ways of selecting such a book, but one good starting place is checking out the Coretta Scott King Book Award.
This is an annual recognition by the American Library Association of outstanding children’s books. When I Googled this award, I recognized a book that was recently placed in our Little Free Antiracist Library, “The Hate You Give” by Angie Thomas (recommended for 13yrs +).
Instead of listing others here, I encourage you to look on-line to read some of the descriptions and appropriate age recommendations. They range from 4yr – Young Adult. You can even make some selections for free by checking out our LFAL! Happy gifting!
