BÉBÉ ANTIRACISTE

D'Ibram X. Kendi & Illustrations D'Ashley Lukashevsky

On ne naît pas bébé antiraciste, on le devient. Un bébé antiraciste est élevé pour faire évoluer la société. Apprenons-nous à être racistes ou antiracistes? Heureusement, il y beaucoup de choses que nous pouvons faire pour faire de l’équité une réalité. Ouvrir nos yeux et voir toutes les couleurs de peau, en parler et aller à l’encontre de politiques racistes constituent de bons moyens de combattre le racisme. Nous avons le pouvoir de transcender les idées reçues et d’œuvrer pour le bien. De ne pas juger un livre selon son apparence et de le lire jusqu’à la fin. Cet album d’actualité, en rimes et rempli d’illustrations en couleurs, permettra aux parents et aux gardiens de déclencher des conversations sur le racisme avec les enfants.

LILI MACARONI

By Nicole Testa

Lili Macaroni loves drawing butterflies, counting the stars, and being exactly who she is—Lili Macaroni. That is, until she starts kindergarten. There her classmates tell her that her hair is like a pumpkin, her eyes are squinty blueberries, and her laugh is like a parrot’s squawk. She has never felt such unhappiness before. It makes her want to erase herself and draw a brand-new Lili. Then she reconsiders. Does she really want to erase her hair that’s just like Mom’s? Her eyes just like Grandma’s? Her Grandpa’s infectious laugh?
