This book was so heartfelt and such a well-written children’s book to explain tragedy. The book follows three children Emma, a white girl that is trying to process racism, Josh, a black boy that is trying to process the unfairness of the treatment of people that are like him, and Omad, a new student that looks different who just wants to fit in. The book does an excellent job of explaining racism, tragedy, and encouraging children to “be the difference they want to see in the world.” I highly recommend this book.

Thank you to Magination Press for making this book available to me.
