    This book is extremely valuable and practical for teaching White children and families how to be antiracist and anti-bias. I appreciate the focus on early childhood and early elementary school settings, which many view as the most challenging environments for understanding race, systemic racism, equity, capitalism, and White supremacy. While reading, I both identified and developed new teaching and learning ideas to apply in the predominantly White, wealthy school in which I teach.

This book will always be relevant considering most of America’s neighborhoods and schools are still racially segregated by design. The resources are helpful as well, particularly Appendix C about modern White antiracist activists.

    I read this book for my Early Childhood Issues and Methods course. This book really opened my eyes as to the stereotypes and biases that we may portray, and not even mean too. This book was also great for learning how to implement these anti-biases and how to handle the themes with every age group.

    Derman-Sparks is an importance voice in antibas/multicultural education for young children and this is probably my favorite resource of hers. There is plenty of practical advice for educators (and parents) - and it is an excellent read even for those of us who work in environments where all the kids are not “all white”. I appreciate the organization and flow of the book, the case studies included, as well as activities and ideas for working with parents and children in the classroom.

    Worth a reread, especially the seven core learning themes and the four goals for anti-bias education.

    This book is for educators, trainers, and facilitators who need creative input and structure for implementing anti-bias multicultural learning in setting where most of the participants are white. Though it's geared for working with children, white adults would also benefit from these kinds of learning exercises.

    Highly recommend to anyone doing AB/AR work. Particularly the early childhood educators set. This was filled with amazing information and real strategies to use in the classroom, as well as some more intermediate level questions for those on their AB/AR journeys. One of the best teacher books I’ve ever read.

    I'm not a teacher, so I was reading this more for insight than for practical use. It was easy to read and it seemed like there were practical suggestions for educators. I gleaned some useful thoughts from it. I'm not a teacher, so I was reading this more for insight than for practical use.

    My colleague and I have expanded our book partnership to a group of four! So far the family aspect or rather the family-school-child connection seems so crucial in this work. It makes me really want to be attentive to this issue at our school. This book is full of sound theory in the form of practical examples and suggested starting points for activities. What I love is the authors' attentiveness to listening to and knowing children and families. My colleague and I have expanded our book partnership to a group of four!

    It may sound arrogant of me, but I really do think everyone should read this book - especially if you identify as white. The history and strategies are infinitely valuable.
