Empowering Resources About Race for Children and Parents
At James Storehouse we believe every human being is made in the image of God and has immeasurable, intrinsic value. We want to celebrate our wonderful diversity by sharing some resources!

More Books for Children. It is important that children see diversity in the images and stories they see, even from a young age! It's also important that all books with people of color aren't necessarily about that person being a person of color. The goal is to normalize the beauty of diversity! When God Made You is a great example! Books by Ezra Jack Keats are classic and beautiful as well! Click Here: List of 30 Books
Book List for Adults. 1. Be the Bridge: Pursuing God's Heart for Racial Reconciliation 2. Eight Books on Race for Adults

Toys. Diversifying your child's toy box is a great way to introduce cultures of all kinds! If your child has a favorite doll or superhero, look for another one in a different ethnicity! Disney characters such as Moana, Tiana, and Mulan are great additions!
