About The Event
Books and stories play an important role in helping children become kind, empathetic, equitable and critically conscious members of their communities. Families can expose and share books with their children that help them affirm and expand their identities and lived experiences. In this interactive workshop, we will explore how books and stories are cornerstones of our communities and the important role they play in the lives of our children. We will critically consider through the process of content analysis how to select books that show authentic representation of intersectional identities and lived experiences. We will also learn easy, accessible and daily activities we can do with books to help our children become critical thinkers.
