Starting Small (Book Reference)

Here is another reference for educators to find children’s literature that can help teach ideas of anti-bias curriculum along with ideas of inclusion.

This is a book that Teaching Tolerance A project of the Southern Poverty Law Center produced to assist parents and teachers to teach concepts of tolerance. Teaching Tolerance’s main idea is to “provide teachers with resources and ideas to help promote harmony in the classroom.” In the back of this book they have a section called “Bookshelf” that has a complication of books relating to themes such as:

  • Racial and Ethnic diversity
  • Families
  • Ability Differences
  • Getting Along
  • Dealing with Feelings
  • Developing Values
  • Hands, Ears and Eyes on

This is a great resource guide to help build curriculum that teaches tolerance and inclusion that is combined with literature that supports and fosters life long learners.
