Antiracist Baby Book Pdf Download
This is a beautiful and subtle marvel of a book! It’s filled with pictures of people of different looks LOOKING COMFORTABLE with each other. Kindness, love and caring between people is illustrated. There is at least a small image of an injustice in the background, with another image later in the book showing a sweet and happy resolution. There are various images of babies being loved by their families; It doesn’t tell you all babies are adorable, it shows you.
When reading a picture book to a toddler or baby, it’s important to stop at the illustrations and spend time asking questions about what the pictures showing, how the characters feeling, and what they actually doing.
For those who think language and concepts are above the level of a young child, how do you expect them to learn if they are never challenged? The words should involve both parents and child and stimulate conversation. Nobody said that being a parent is always easy. Reading this book is an opportunity to teach, to think, to discuss, if not at the beginning then later.
I’ve watched America’s dumbing down for 60 years, where books are not used for teaching and entertainment, only for entertainment at the lowest possible level, and the books are strictly age-targeted. There is no progress in learning and experiencing without trying a slightly more difficult vocabulary, technique or concept. People tend to underestimate intelligence of the babies and the children. This is an idea book and will grow with your child.
I’m appalled by the negative or one star reviews of this book where it seems like people didn’t spend time looking at the pictures and trying to figure out what was going on. In some cases, these readers are obviously uncomfortable with the topic or have deep psychological issues.
I went back and read a lot of the low reviews.
Some low ratings are due to the fact that a large number of people are functionally illiterate. “Justice” is a real word, not a misspelling of “equality.” To claim that race is wrong (it doesn’t exist) is correct because race is a modern artificial construct. To say that people come in many colors is correct and not racist because it is a biological fact. If you have eyes you will see colors and other variations in people and that is in no way racist.
Some low ratings come from people who find the diversity of humanity in the illustrations disturbing. In the real world, most people are neither black nor white.
Some critics erroneously conclude that everyone who is not white must be black by default, so they see most illustrations as “black” and erupt in fits of outrage claiming it is a “racist” image or anti- “White”. or even a BLM book! It is not.
Some readers are so incensed about the topic of “anti-racism” that they were furious before they opened the book and couldn’t see clearly.
Some critics simply have to lie about the book’s content: that it is anti-white, racist, contains no white images, teaches victimhood, dependency, titled Whining, Shame and Hate. Nothing is further from the truth. Some of these reviewers may be severely functionally illiterate, but I really suspect they are fervent racists. You have to claim that an anti-racist book is evil. Some of them say he’s evil! But that comes from within and not from the covers of this thoughtful, intelligent, wonderful book.
I think it could be useful on a deep emotional level to help an adult understand racism and change themselves. If you want to.
