An absolutely marvelous picture book on a topic that simply must be discussed with white children regardless of how uncomfortable it is: whiteness and white supremacy. Clear about the difference between being white and whiteness, clear about the harm of white supremacy and that it is a white problem, clear about the fact that well-intended people we love may be contributing, but nonetheless age appropriate for a beginning introduction to the topic. A vital tool to start challenging conversations with little loved ones because that is how we change the world.

Appropriate for ages 5 to 10. ( )

The theme is one I was all in for and parts of the book had me nodding my head in agreement and saying "Yes, white people! Tell your kids about these things and start thinking about what it's like for people who look different than you do!" The book in it's entirety, though, just felt lacking. It kept feeling like it would get close to making a great point about what racism is or describing some situation so a child would understand it, but then the implied news story or incident would fall flat because of lack of explanation. The book is about how parents can keep kids in the dark about racism and terrible things happening because of it in the world today so they need to speak up and demand to be let in on the conversation, yet this book is hiding many things.

Honestly, I wouldn't read this again. I had to fill in so many gaps while reading with my kids that I would've been better off if I just came up with the content myself based on the pics in the book or, idk...um...TALK TO MY KIDS AS THINGS HAPPEN, as well as having ongoing conversations to combat systemic and individual racism. Shouldn't we all be doing this? Shouldn't we help our children to understand what is happening and why when they see or hear bad things? Shouldn't shutting racism down start with white people making sure we aren't creating racists and also trying our hardest to shut down those white supremacist KKK fuckers who already waste too much air and space on this planet?

This books attempts to take on what it means to be white in the 21st century. It is a hand-made book, with collages, and hand-written script. The simplicity of the book does not take away from the gut-punches about racism in the United States, however, and includes a strong call-to-action at the end of the book that “Whiteness is a Bad Deal, but you can be white without signing on to Whiteness.” This book tries to tackle a VERY complicated subject matter (whiteness) in limited space and with children as the audience. I am not sure it is completely successful, and I would suspect that children would need a capable adult to process the book after reading it.

The story of young white child as she goes through the process of awakening from her state of racial privilege. The book challenges the reader to become an up-stander against racism and ignorance. "Racism was not your idea. You don't need to defend it."

I would give this book a million stars if I could. It is such an important message, that racism is not just a problem for the people on the receiving end of injustice, but racism is a White person's problem as well. This is the clearest, simplest, presentation of this I have ever read and every white parent should share it with their children. ( )
