The latest in Anastasia Higginbotham's Ordinary Terrible Things series, a white child sees TV coverage of a police shooting—and has some questions. Not My Idea: A Book About Whitenessis a book about racism and racial justice, inviting white children and parents to become curious about racism, accept that it's real, and cultivate justice. Written in direct, accessible, compassionate language and hailed as “a necessary children’s book about whiteness, white supremacy, and resistance," Not My Idea prioritizes honesty over comfort without sacrificing children’s well-being, choosing instead to embrace their immense capacity for observing and engaging with challenging topics.
