Children’s Books That Address Intolerance . . . On Several Fronts

Kendal Rautzhan, a nationally syndicated columnist, recently ran an article about children’s books that addressed intolerance. The article featured three books:

Let’s Talk About Race by Julius Lester, illustrated by Karen Barbour

Sit-In: How Four Friends Stood Up By Sitting Down by Andrea Pinkney, illustrated by Brian Pinkney

Bystander by James Preller

Of my book, Rautzhan wrote:

Expertly written and rich on multiple levels, “Bystander” weaves a realistic tale of the bully, the bully’s targets and the physical and emotional pain that the victims suffer. It explores what might happen when someone decides to no longer be a bystander and to do something about the bully’s behavior.

Thank you, Kendal. I’m happy for this book — and this topic — to receive some attention. And it’s great to be in such fine company!
