In Racism and Intolerance, children can get answers to questions like: "What does it mean to be a racist--or intolerant?" and "How can I help?" Children will begin to understand the way others struggle with these issues and become empowered to make a difference.

With relatable comparisons, carefully researched text and striking illustrations, children can begin to understand how racism and intolerance affect them and how they see the world.

"A powerful opportunity for discussion with youngsters and a worthwhile purchase for home and school collections." —School Library Journal

"This book covers serious subject matter in a gentle way for children. “Racism” and “intolerance” are explained with examples kids can relate to. The author discusses how prejudice could manifest at school. The most difficult pages to read are “Around the world” and “Changing lives.” Some of the examples given are buildings being bombed and war. The accompanying drawings illustrate these issues but aren’t graphic. The second half of the book is about what can be done to change things. Kids are given easy ways that they can make a difference. They are also instructed to tell an adult if they experience racism themselves. I like how the illustrations are inclusive, with different people in every picture. It’s an important subject, and I think this book does a great job of both explaining and empowering." —San Francisco Book Review

"Children are often full of questions about the world, but sometimes the answers can be complicated or troubling. Titles in the Children in Our World series aim to help little ones grasp some of these complex issues by offering gentle explanations, which are further softened by amiable illustrations of round-faced kids. Racism and Intolerance uses general language to address a complex topic. An emphasis on empathy—"How would you feel if that happened to you?"—will likely help children grasp the importance of equal treatment. The soft artwork and accessible, age-appropriate language make this well suited to curious kids in the picture-book set." —Booklist
