The work of Derman-Sparks and the ABC Task Force is still HIGHLY relevant 20 years after publication. That the book is now out of print is a tragedy. At the time of their original publication, they were groundbreaking, and even today their work is considered progressive and thus often controversial, especially to the many who don't see or understand the need for change in how social inequalities are reascribed and supported in education.

I have only two qualms with the text:
First, all the resea
My favorite takeaway was the practice of sharing narratives with persona dolls, reinforcing with empirical examples the power of story in creating empathy and connection. Definitely worth a reread! I'd be curious to know how to best address cisgender/transgender for this age as well.

Required textbook reading. Maybe I didn't have the tolerance for it because I just finished up an entire semester's worth of anti-bias in my Psych of Prejudice class. Either way, I couldn't get through three pages at a time without falling asleep, no matter how awake and alert I was. Some suggestions and activities are totally worth checking into, but overall I found the book to be redundant.

Recommends it for: Preschool and elementary teachers
Another textbook. Great for learning how to plan lessons for children that isn't biased. Explains how to teach children to accept everyone for who they are, and to learn more about other cultures than what they are usually exposed to.
I found out there is a new version of this, so I'm setting it aside for the new, trans-inclusive edition.
This is a great book-- but I am actually reading the much improved second edition.
a must read for those who work with young children.
