Over the past week, my inbox has been filled with people asking me for a way forward. In light of the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, many are wondering, “Where do I start?” and, “How can I faithfully prepare my child to see and treat all people with dignity rooted in the image of God?”

Although countless resources are easily accessible via Google, and various lists of anti-racism children’s books have already been compiled, I can sympathize with feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about how to discuss these issues with my child.

For that reason, I’m so grateful for these five children’s books that cover topics like the image of God, the evil of racism, the gospel of grace, the beauty of diversity in the church, and what faithfulness to Christ looks like in a society that too often treasures white supremacy above Christ and his multiethnic, colorful kingdom.
