K-Gr 2–In the traditional Sesame Street approach and understanding of childhood’s emotions and knowledge, these two titles center children’s voices and roles in various social situations and issues. ¡Hablémoslo! (see ISBN 9798765623862) affirms that everyone experiences conflicts, even on Sesame Street, and there are different ways to manage and solve disagreements. This guide provides steps to discuss problems and collaborate in finding potential solutions, and conversation and breathing exercises to manage emotions. Vamos a cambiar el mundo todos juntos provides young readers, and the adults in their lives, simple text and vocabulary about racial justice. The guide aims to assist children in understanding that people have different physical traits, and how sometimes these traits are used to discriminate and harm people. The friendly text encourages children to name and share with an adult when they or a friend experience racial discrimination and take active roles in advocating for racial justice. Both guides are accompanied by photographs of children and adults, as well as the Sesame Street characters playing an interactive role in engaging children in important topics.
VERDICT Useful and age-sensitive resources for handling tough but important subjects from a trusted source.
