On April 7th, we organized a 1.5 hour workshop called Spotting Stereotypes in Storybooks. This workshop teaches parents how to recognize racist, stereotypical or negative representations in children’s books.
This free workshop invites parents to participate in an interactive lesson, filled with reflection exercises, group discussions, and practice. Parents will practice identifying problematic stereotypes in children’s books, how to talk about both negative and positive representations, and how to balance diverse stories and affirming stories. Parents will finish the workshop feeling confident and equipped with the right tools to share positive and affirming representations of BIPOC communities during story time.
