Books for Young Activists: Never too Early

As a grandparent, I’m finding it difficult explaining current events to our grandchildren. They’re aware of the election results and know where we stand. They hear rumors from classmates about what may or may not happen.

We try to avoid their questions or just answer vaguely. We don’t want them to worry.

Yet it’s never too early to start children thinking about the world and their role in it. So I’m gratefully sharing this blog post: 35 Picture Books for Young Activists.

Find them at your library. Ask the library to order them. Buy them. Share them. Discuss them.

  1. Wonderful selection of books for young readers. I agree that children should understand what is going on in our world, but the mother of my youngest grandchildren criticizes me for introducing reality into her children’s lives. She wants them to grow up in a fairy tale world until it is no longer possible.

  3. A little reality and a little fantasy stimulate the imagination, so long as it is a good story and well written.
