A Look at Books
One of the ways that we can explore diversity, equity, and inclusion is through the books we choose to share with children. In KW, we are reading books that feature people of color, non-traditional families, and differently-abled people. These books sometimes elicit responses and conversations. Here's some of the things that we've heard from the children lately.
Bea - The sister is mean, but at the end she's nice. There's some mean boys that laugh at him (the title character).
Wilder - That might be bad and hurt his feelings.
Jade - Or he might not play with them.
Jack - I liked the book because of all the golden stuff.
Nora - I liked the book because of the sparkle nail polish.
C.C. - I liked the book because of the ending.
Lochie - Yeah, I liked the ending when the sister and brother were friends.
Audrey - I liked the ending, too.
Pink Is for Boys
Finlay - Pink is for boys and girls.
Elle - I love that one. Pink is for only girls.
Giacomo - Pink is for girls, but boys can use it.
C.C. - Pink is for girls and boys and green is for girls and boys and blue is for girls and boys.
Maiden and Princess
Finlay - I liked it when they kissed.
Bea - I liked it because they loved each other.
Sylvie - I like that one a lot.
Janie - I like the dark skin and the light skin.
Lochie - It's not okay that they're being mean to her about skin.
Janie - They need to change their attitude.
