    Dragons,

    As our country deals with another death of an innocent black man at the hands of police, and the crippling effects this pandemic is having on black and indigenous communities, you may be asking, "what can I do to help my children understand this?" I strongly believe that books are a great place to start and can open the door to conversations with our children. This year's Caldecott winner, The Undefeated, is a wonderful picture book. Additionally, the Newbery winner, New Kid, deals with race and racism in an age-appropriate and accessible manner for our middle grade readers. Below are some resources I recommend as well. Please feel free to reach out to me for further resources.
