It’s never too early to have a conversation about race and racial differences with kids. But, it can be difficult to know how to start having that conversation.

Coming to the aid is American Girl’s new advice book, A Smart Girl’s Guide: Race & Inclusion. Written by diversity and inclusion expert Deanna Singh, this book helps kids ages 10 and up develop racial fluency, question biases, and understand racism at its core.
