Award-winning illustrator Hanane Kai uses a deft hand to create powerful illustrationhs that help children visualize the people impacted by poverty, hunger, war, racism, and more. Each book uses relatable comparisons, carefully researched text, and striking illustrations to help kids understand the many difficulties that children just like them face in the world today. In Racism and Intolerance, children can get answers to questions like: "What does it mean to be a racist--or intolerant?" and "How can I help?" Children will begin to understand the way others struggle with these issues and become empowered to make a difference. All of the images are sensitively rendered and perfectly suiterd for younger children. These books are an excellent cross-curricular resource, use them to explore important issues and tie them into discussions about food, wealth, compassion, empathy, and current current affairs.
