By Booklandia

These are books that I have selected for the Booklandia community to help you talk about race with your children.  Unfortunately, there isn't an extensive list in Spanish or Bilingual.  We have to change that!  Have any suggestions  Contact us: [email protected]

 

Booklandia receives 10% commission from Bookshop for these sales.  I am donating 5% of the commission to The Conscious Kid's Anti-Racist Children’s Books Education Fund.    

It will be donated at the end of each month.
