Videos Exploring Multicultural Children’s Books Through an Antibias Lens

In response to an overwhelming number of requests for recommendations of antibias children’s books, Social Justice Books, a Teaching for Change project, has launched the Freedom Reads: Anti-Bias Book Talk video series, in which the Teaching for Change associate director shares how the organization selects high-quality, antibias books so that parents and teachers can do the same. Freedom Reads: Anti-Bias Book Talk is part antibias training, part book review. Each short segment explores antibias books for home and the classroom with the goal to strengthen parents’ and teachers’ antibias, antiracism lens and their ability to critically analyze children’s media. The introduction and six episodes of the video series are accessible online. The episodes run under ten minutes, and each one walks viewers through a synopsis of the book, relevant resources, and four to five key points from an antibias, critical literacy perspective. The series is inspired by Social Justice Books’ Roving Readers program (parents read aloud in classrooms), antibias education resources and training, and reviews from the Social Justice Books website.
