This is a bit didactic, but it's a great conversation starter with kids. I wish this existed when I was a kid. ( )

This book talked about police brutality and the mistreatment of black people but made it understandable for kids and adults. The book gave a “easy” call to action that kids can do to treat everyone fair and do what’s right. ( )

A story about two children and their families, one white and one black, as they discuss a police shooting of a black man. Child-friendly definitions of topics like racism and injustice are included and show. A powerful way to show children how they can begin to talk about complex events like those in the text. ~Best Picture Books About Racism and Inequality

"Emma and Josh heard that something happened in their town. A Black man was shot by the police.

"Why did the police shoot that man?"

"Can police go to jail?"

Something Happened in Our Town follows two families — one White, one Black — as they discuss a police shooting of a Black man in their community. The story aims to answer children's questions about such traumatic events, and to help children identify and counter racial injustice in their own lives.

Includes an extensive Note to Parents and Caregivers with guidelines for discussing race and racism with children, child-friendly definitions, and sample dialogues.

Free, downloadable educator materials (including discussion questions) are available at www.apa.org

From the Note to Parents and Caregivers:

There are many benefits of beginning to discuss racial bias and injustice with young children of all races and ethnicities:
Research has shown that children even as young as three years of age notice and comment on differences in skin color.
Humans of all ages tend to ascribe positive qualities to the group that they belong to and negative qualities to other groups.
Despite some parents’ attempts to protect their children from frightening media content, children often become aware of incidents of community violence, including police shootings.
Parents who don’t proactively talk about racial issues with their children are inadvertently teaching their children that race is a taboo topic. Parents who want to raise children to accept individuals from diverse cultures need to counter negative attitudes that their children develop from exposure to the negative racial stereotypes that persist in our society."

After the news breaks of the killing of a local black man by a police officer, two families - one black and one white - talk to their children about racism. The children, Josh and Emma, classmates at school, try to make sense of the killing and of racism, and use their families discussions to befriend a new student at school. As a parent of 10 and 12 year olds, I highly recommend this book as a way to continue the conversation about race. Includes resources for families and a note to parents and caregivers. Named the NCSS-CBC 2019 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People. ( )
