I love this picture book series for children. It takes on big social issues and tries to make it simple for parents to have a conversation with their children, without terrifying them. I like the illustrations in this one too.

I put together a racism text set for my fourth grade classroom, and this was the best nonfiction picture book I could find that defined racism for kids. While it would have benefited from a couple pages on racial profiling, overall it did a fair job of broaching this complex topic. The illustrations are lovely and filled with people from many different races and religions. It's a good book to help answer some of the questions students have about racism, prejudice, and discrimination.

Well, as the title says this is a graphic novel about "racism and intolerance" for kids. It's a fast read, and they explain the concepts in a way that everybody can understand. It's a hard subject but it gives a message pro-tolerance and it was nice to read this from a point of view that maybe is naive but it's so positive that it didn't bother me.


Bueno, como dice el titulo es una historia

This picture book, originally published in England, deals with the important topics of Racism and Intolerance. This words can be hard for young children to understand and sharing this book with them will help in that understanding. By using illustrations of characters who show up on most of the pages, a child can visualize the story about prejudice towards people different than those who reflect their own culture and race. Examples show the lack of fairness, understanding, and tolerance at the ...more

Why we chose this book:
We've been talking a lot about racism lately for two reasons, one of which is that we recently watched Disney's Peter Pan. I only remembered liking it as a kid; I sure didn't remember the "Indian Camp" and everything related to it in Neverland. I knew the racist stereotypes couldn't go unaddressed as we watched, and as I explained and talked to T, I knew I could use a little help in addressing such an important topic. B.E.S. Publishing provided a review copy in exchange
Part of the "Children In Our World" series, this was a very well written book. The author explains the concept of racism, intolerance and prejudice in a way that children will be able to understand. It looks at how these factors affect people world-wide. The author also takes the time to speak about the positiveness of differences, respect, and how to be united rather than divided. Excellent resource for school and public libraries. Parents would find this a terrific book to add to personal home ...more
This is a must read and must own book for all, both children and adults. It explains racism and intolerance so clearly, with images that work with the book.
