The ABCs of Diversity: Helping Kids (and Ourselves!) Embrace Our Differences!
The ABCs of Diversity: Helping Kids (and Ourselves!) Embrace Our Differences
The Children’s Ministry Committee is inviting you to continue our discussions on navigating conversation on diversity. It is a time of learning and supporting each other as we look towards a better future.
How do we raise the next generation to respect and learn from people who look or believe differently than they do? From two educators who are also moms comes a guide to help parents and other teachers navigate conversations about all kinds of diversity. This practical resource includes activities to build compassion and empathy among differing religions, classes, races, genders, abilities, political affiliations, sexual orientations, nationalities, and more.
“The ABCs of Diversity equips us to be co-conspirators in creating a justice- and love-infused future of flourishing for all. Read this book.” —Jennifer Harvey, author, Raising White Kids
“A well-structured and pragmatic approach to teaching young people how to embrace the differences among us and begin to participate in civic engagement.—Library Journal
