During this time of national crisis and changes to our daily lives, many find themselves home all day with children of varying ages. If you are looking for books to read aloud, read together or discuss in your family, we are here to help. Books Matter is ADL’s collection of picture books, chapter books and young adult literature that address issues of identity, diversity, bias, bullying and hate.
Each month, our featured Book of the Month comes with two discussion guides: one for the classroom and one for the home. Our parent/family discussion guides include conversation starters, talking points, related books and additional resources.
