Up Close and Personal
And The People
Often it is difficult to broach certain sensitive situations with children. And the People Carried Signs is an introduction to the Black Lives Matter Movement from the eyes of a pre-teen child. This book is designed to raise awareness with youth and help classroom discussions that center around race, equity, justice- and hope.
This book is a great way to introduce the conversation of race with young children. We can keep trying to pretend it is not a factor, but it is something they should know, understand, and make their own informed choices about. This book gets to the heart of this!

The awareness and timeliness of this depiction of Black Lives Matters as well as the persistence of people is needed. This is a must read to fuel necessary conversations regarding change, future generation inspiration, and overall purpose. Please continue to shine a light on unsung issues. Representation Matters!
