The conversation about race is one parents need to have with their children, and the sooner they start, the better.  As early as 6 months, a baby’s brain can notice race-based differences.  Children can internalize racial bias between the ages of 2 and 4, and by age 12, many children become set in their beliefs – according to an article from the American Academy of Pediatrics.  So parents and caregivers must talk to their children about race, what is happening right now, and make plans to continue this conversation in the long run – not only when we’re in a moment of national outrage.

A great way to start is to ensure your children have books with Black people at the center of the books they read.  It is equally important that these books tell a wide range of stories about the Black experience and not just showcase them as victims of oppression.  So we have compiled a list of 20 books for children to help you kick-start the conversation about race and racism in your home in a child-appropriate way.
