An Antiracist Reading List for Young Readers
Our present moment serves not only as a call to action, but an opportunity to educate ourselves and our community about the underlying issues that led to the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many, many others. We hope this list provides resources for parents and families to start having difficult and necessary conversations with kids about systemic racism, white privilege, and activism to move toward an antiracist future.
This list focuses on books recommended for ages 0-12. Looking for more amazing kids books by Black authors and illustrators? Here are more recommendations from our booksellers.
You can find recommended reading for teens here.
Not all titles are readily available in-store now, but we are working to get them into your hands as soon as possible.
Curbside Pick-up is available now daily, 10a - 3p (except 1 - 2p on Wednesdays). All orders must be placed online and paid for in advance.
