What's in a Book? Things to Consider When Using Children’s Books to Have Conversations About Race

February 23, 4 to 6 pm | Free virtual training for educators

To ensure an interactive learning experience, space will be limited, so register today!

Picture books are wonderful tools for having conversations about race with young children, but you can’t always judge a book by its cover – especially when it comes to race talk. We invite you to come learn with us about ways to think about and use picture books as mirrors, windows, and prisms in conversations about race with young children. We’ll take a look at the books we recommended for the Office of Child Development's Books for Change Anti-Racist Book Drive, share frameworks for thinking about the books themselves, and tools for having conversations with young children.

To ensure an interactive learning experience, space will be limited, so sign up soon! Two Act 48 hours are available for those who are interested.

Presented by the Office of Child Development's new Literacy and Learning Division.
