In advance of Independent Bookstore day, Iโ€™m looking for books that are a higher reading level (and I say this because I have some kiddos that want BIG books) but doable content for second graders. Any suggestions?

For me, I'll always fall on the side of protecting kids from harmful representations. Because it's always more important to preference not harming kids & not perpetuating racist stereotypes, than our adult feelings.

If your first response to racist stereotypes being pointed out in a picture book is to get defensive, I urge you to do some internal reflection in order to rethink why it is upsetting to you.

Just b/c an element of diversity is present in a picture book, it doesn't mean that it can't ALSO have racist stereotypes present. Books can be good in one sense AND problematic in another. We need to decide which is more important

Be critical in your choices & avoid sharing books with racist stereotypes. The presence of a positive does not outweigh a negative.

If your next response is to say we should stop taking offense & just celebrate diversity, I urge you to do some research into the history of , racism & stereotypes to understand why that's problematic.
