What models do children have for standing up to social justice issues? What social justice issues matter to students? How early is too early to introduce difficult subjects? Participants in this class will examine new children’s books, examining them in regards to issues of social justice and activism. Together we will analyze, discuss and compose a collaborative bibliography of new books on issues such as environment, gender, and racial equity books.
