Anti racist and inclusive books for kids

Anti racist and inclusive books for kids

We believe it's important for all children to have access to books that:

  • Feature characters that look and talk like them
  • Emphasizes the power of using your voice to stand-up for what you believe in
  • Teaches kids about the importance of inclusive language and actions

Because of this, we are constantly working towards providing the latest and widest range of inclusive books for kids, as possible. Included below are some of our favorite anti-racist and inclusive books for babies and kids. Take a look through our favorites below, or check out all of our books here

A is for Activist by Innosanto Nagara

A is for Activist is an ABC board book written and illustrated for the next generation of progressives: families who want their kids to grow up in a space that is unapologetic about activism, environmental justice, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, and everything else that activists believe in and fight for.

The alliteration, rhyming, and vibrant illustrations make the book exciting for children, while the issues it brings up resonate with their parents' values of community, equality, and justice. This engaging little book carries huge messages as it inspires hope for the future, and calls children to action while teaching them a love for books.

If your little one is anything like ours, they will especially enjoy N for No, no, no!
