Quarry Bks. May 2023. 144p. pap. $22.99. ISBN 9780760381328.
Gr 3-7–With 38 hands-on art projects, this book puts the tools of anti-racist work into the hands of teachers and students alike. Projects are divided into six topics: identity, culture, community, empathy, justice, and activism. Chapters open by outlining the definition and objectives of the topic, while each project features a section on “why this matters,” to tie into the chapter topic and ideas for future ways to apply the concept in real life. Lessons and objectives are thoughtfully presented and organized to be informative without becoming overwhelming. The art projects are creative as well as practical and can realistically be used in classrooms and at home. Featuring color photos and bright blocks of text, this art book is visually stimulating and exciting. Appendixes include visual references, a glossary, about the authors, and index.
VERDICT Highly recommended for teachers and school libraries.
