This was a book on my friend’s baby book registry. It’s unusual and is a professional looking book with vivid colors. But the price was pretty steep.

Why are there people dead set to bring back the division of the past!? They literally make profit off creating a divide and it’s sad, pathetic and even more so this is sold as a dang baby book. Grow up. Get some counseling and therapy but stop trying to make kids feel bad for being born “inherently racist” …

I appreciate the effort but this book is only for parents trying to compensate for their own guilt. Developmentally, it makes no sense to read this to a baby. Heck - most children under 10 would struggle to get the messaging. It firstly feels like the author took high school or college aged material and didn’t bother to adapt it for actual children.

Not developmentally appropriate for young ones. Babies do not have an understanding for such big words yet.

Babies and toddlers understand race. My son would call people with darker skin “scary” and “yucky”. He has white skin, I have dark skin. He was not exposed to anything that should make him think that but he spoke his opinion. He never said “scary” or “yucky” to white people. I tried to expose him to all races at Asian market, Mexican markets, etc. These books really help with helping my son understand how to be a GOOD person and not develop further towards becoming a racist, like some of the white people with these negative reviews. I hope this author makes more books on the topic for children.

Some good values but not for babies

There are some really good values in this book to teach children. However, no baby comes out of the womb racist/antiracist and I don’t think babies need to be fighting the injustices of the world. This would be better to teach an older child. And I really don’t like that the word “antiracist” is even in the book, in the same way I wouldn’t want “hate” on every page of a baby book. “Accepting baby” or something else would be so much better for a child.

Funny how all the 1 star reviews are not verified purchases and say how kids learn to be racist, which is literally what this book teaches. This book shows that kids learn from their environments and if they read this in school, then it’s probably a good thing because they might not be learning antiracism at home.
