This timely book counters the devastatinging effects of racism on children's learning with a focus on "revolutionary love". Sharing ways they've overcome personal and professional challenges in their teaching, the authors show readers how to unpack unconscious biases and examine common, but inherently racist practices that make learning difficult or impossible for many children of color. They offer in return practices that affirm and celebrate all students' identities, languages, and cultures- building a community of engaged, valued, and thoughtful learners. You'll find guidelines for selecting diverse children's books, and ways to use those books in reading and writing lessons that help children identify both glaring and veiled forms of racism and take an anti-racist stance. If you want to create a vibrant classroom community that honors the funds of knowledge that children of color and their families bring to school, this is the book for you.
