I Don’t Like Racism is written by Tymeka Coney and illustrated by Nida Saeed. This book is aimed towards children and successfully educates the audience on issues of racism. A quote to sum up this book is: “I love everyone, no matter their race. We are all different but we can all
still embrace.”

The message of this book is very strong and is an essential read for children. It is told in an appropriate manner and the language is accessible for children of all ages. I believe this book should be ma

"No one is free until we all are free" - Martin Luther King Jr.

The modern-day history of America is filled with police brutality and racial injustice. Although, the status has been changed a bit in recent times but not in the case of unjust murders of people of color by the hand of police officers. Amidst the height of protests, the killing continues. This book serves as an educational as well as an inspirational guide for children. We have to teach them the history of racism and how it has been

This book is the need of the hour!

This is exactly what we need to teach our children!! To assure that there would never be a child who has to grow up in a world filled with racism and prejudice against any race or color.

The book also shows us how innocent children are! How the color of another child doesn’t matter to them when they want to share their joy of life and happiness on the playground. Why can’t we as adults learn something so powerful and pure from our children!

The book highlights th

This book is worth every read, I have recommended to almost everyone in my family. As a parent, I try as much as possible to shield my children from the evils of this world ranging from racism, to molestation or unfairness in the justice system. However, this book helped me to bring in my kids to the realization of what's happening in the real world. I like the affirmation in the title, "I Don't Like Racism". Tymeka Coney has done well choosing a diction pattern suitable for both children and ad ...more

An alarming and impactful story for upcoming and existing generation to know what is happening in real world and it needs to be discussed.
Author Tymeka Coney showed a good concern towards children’s to pinpoint society true norms and values packed in a hidden frame.
A girl’s cousin died due to police brutal behavior because of his skin color. This catchy event makes it more critical yet very important thing to discuss in today’s world because people surrounding them are laughing and doing nothing

Hi, bookworms.

A couple of days ago my niece asked me what children's book I could recommend to her, and the first title that came to mind at that time was "I don´t Like Racism" by Tymeka Coney. I could have told her to buy one of those princesses or those juvenile novels, but I prefer her to learn about the reality that we live day after day.

We have all been through some horrible things in our lives, but racism is the worst thing that can happen to us, and they need to know that.

We have to te

Tymeka Coney must be applauded for thinking of writing this book for kids. It’s a shame that even in the 21st-century, kids need to be taught about equality-about not being a victim to unfair treatment, and not meting out unfair treatment to others just because of the color of their skin. But unfortunately, that’s true, and this book will teach the kids just that. This book is essential in light of the recent events because I’m sure all the kids would have been wondering what really happened and ...more

Tymeka Coney wrote a great children book for your kids to learn about racism and love and understand how we are all equals; therefore, we shouldn’t discriminate based on colour, hair, style, etc. I have to admit that this book is really touching, because we know that it is true, unfortunately what our main character is dealing with, is something that happens to several families. As a non-american person it is shocking for me to hear about racism and police brutality, it is something that I don’t ...more

***** This book tells the story of racism through the eyes of a young African American girl, DaNyla, and her experiences with racism as she witnesses her cousin involved in police brutality and she tries to understand why racism exists. The book is powerful and beautifully Illustrated.
The message is delivered in very clear ways, it is jarring, as it should be. The topic is necessary and a good tool to discuss #BlackLivesMatter with younger kids.
