Books To Help Kids Understand Race Issues
Brittany Peacock of the Davenport Public Library stopped by PSL to make some book recommendations that address race issues to help every family member become better educated about race issues and inequality.
Most of the books are for children but the first title discussed is for adults:
• “I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made For
Whiteness” by Austin Channing Brown
For various ages of children:
• “Monday’s Not Coming” by Tiffany D. Jackson
• “From the Desk of Zoe Washington” by Janae Marks
• “Parker Looks Up: An Extraordinary Moment” by
Parker & Jessica Curry
Davenport Public Library or any local library can provide more information on how to reserve or find these titles or recommend other books for your family members.
