Our little ones have an innate sense of right and wrong. They also have a sense of what is fair and unfair , explainingย the basics of human rights in age appropriate ways is an important factor of anti-racist parenting and anti-bias education. Parents and educators can use books as a great tool toย set the foundation for a lifelong commitment to social responsibility and global citizenship.

Here are some beautifully illustrated books centering various human rights issues, movements and topics to include:

Race & ethnicity equity and equality
Education right
Immigration rights
LGBQTIA+ rights
Envionmental rights
Disability rights


Iโ€™m often asked as an educator โ€œwell what if some of these go against my beliefs?โ€

My answer is find a balance with your personal stances and educating your children about the identities of others. All human rights movements are rooted in identity visibility.

Our reality is - people exist, people fight for the rights they desire - whether it aligns with our personal stances or not.

Anti-racist and Anti-bias education and parenting acknowledges visibility of all identities and peoples.

A tip thatโ€™s generally well received is to not make the mistake of conflating learning about other belief systems, movements and peoples and projecting things onto your children.
You can find these titles in our Book Nook if you are looking to add them to you bookshelves.

We move toward more authentic unity when we peer outside of our own door and to acknowledge & empathize with what's going on in our world around us.
