Our second in a series will be “Stand Up for Your-shell-ves." Racism and other kinds of discrimination are huge issues, especially right now, and we know younger kids may not understand the topics very easily. We have used simpler ideas to explain the problems through a child’s perspective with a story and more information about discrimination in the past.
With the help of one of our characters, Sam the Snail, we tell a story with a lesson that leads up to how you can prevent events like the ones that have happened recently. Showing respect for others is a phrase greatly repeated to little kids, but our book isn’t focused only on that. It’s the understanding of the topics, racism and other forms of discrimination, that will help them grasp why they need to be respectful.
We also would like to thank our teachers, Mr. Montooth and Ms. Schol, as well as Kandise Le Blanc and our parents for their huge amount of help with writing the book and giving us amazing advice and ideas.
This book was written for children ages 3 - 12
