15 Books That Teach About Social Justice and Activism

As a Jewish woman living in America, I struggle with my own thoughts on how to talk to my daughter about the anti-semitic attack in Pittsburgh this week. It’s hard enough to process as an adult. So what do we tell our children? How do we talk about race and social justice with kids?  Because to not talk about it, we’re part of the problem. We’ve got to talk about it. These conversations can be hard.

For me, the books I share with my daughter go a long way in developing her compassion for others and Book Passage has come up with a must read list of books that teaches about social justice and activism for every age.
