‘Standing Up to Racism’ by Dr Pragya Agarwal

My Review (5 stars out of 5)

This lift-the-flap book is designed as a tool for parents and young children to talk about racism. Aimed at recognising the differences between people and their cultures it explains in (mostly) age-appropriate language what racism is and how to stand up to it.

With illustrations by Louise Forshaw, this is a hard-back book with lift-the-flap pages to show outcomes. It isn’t a storybook but gives examples of things children might come across in their everyday lives, such as someone who thinks a particular skin colour is better or more important than another. With examples of sharing and fairness, it shows positive ways of treating people who are different to ourselves.

The blurb for the book mentions a free parent guide to talking about racism which can be downloaded separately. Unfortunately, this isn’t mentioned at all in the book so I’ve no idea where it can be found.
