Great literature can help create new ideas and meaningful conversations.  Need some help discussing difficult topics?  This is a reposting of an article from June 2nd, 2020 The New York Times entitled These Books can Help You Explain Racism and Protest to Your Kids.  The book list that they list in their article includes the Ezra Jack Keats’s classic, The Snowy Day, as well as a lovey, new book entitled Hair Love, about a black father learning to care for his daughter’s hair for the first time.  Also included is the award-winning Last Stop on Market Street.
