Description
Summary:Race Cars is a children's book about white privilege created to help facilitate tough conversations with their kids about race, privilege and oppression. It tells the story of two best friends, a white car and a black car, that have different experiences and face different rules while entering the same race. This book is important because as early as six months, a baby's brain can notice race-based differences, by ages two to four, children can internalize racial bias and start assigning meaning to race. Five to eight-year-olds begin to place value judgments on similarities and differences. By age twelve, children have a complete set of stereotypes about every racial, ethnic and religious group in society. Our guidance is especially crucial during this impressionable time. Race Cars offers a simple, yet powerful way to introduce these complicated themes to our children.
