Resources for Raising Conscious Kids: February 2024 Edition

As an agency, Bridgetown Baby is deeply committed to tackling bias ourselves, building our skills, and creating an inclusive model of care that truly serves our clients and contributes to culture change. This is work we can all do. It starts with us; it continues with our children – and we are their most important teachers. Each month, we’ll share resources for expanding perspectives, talking to kids about prejudice, celebrating diversity, and actions our families can take to create a world we can all live in.

This month, we honor Black History Month with a book that celebrates the beauty of black – as a color in the physical world around us, and as a representation of the generations of Black leaders, young and old, who courage shaped a thriving Black community and changed the world for the better.

Black is a Rainbow Color features compelling verse by author Angela Joy paired with bright, action-packed illustrations by Caldecott Honoree and Coretta Scott King Award-winner Ekua Holme.

Younger readers will enjoy finding colors, shapes and textures in the pages, while caregivers can help slightly older readers connect with the message about the importance of celebrating the many facets of Black history in a world that often does not make room for Black in its rainbow.
