To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I read this with my eight year old who was surprisingly attentive through the whole book over several nights. There were admittedly quite a few words that she needed a definition for, especially in the 2nd half of the book, which didn't explain things as much. Fortunately, she had already heard a lot of the names mentioned. I could see us re-reading this in a year or two.
Highly recommend this book for any family with kids 9+. Have read it through with my 9 year old and we’ve had some good conversations. It’s never too early to start talking about race and systemic racism, and this book does a great job introducing some really difficult themes from our nation’s history.
As an educator this book enlightened me on many historical facts/events . I read the teen version as well and both of these books are excellent! Like many reviews I agree that this book should be shared in the classroom. I’m going to ask my principal read this book in hopes that I can read it with my 5th grade class. Great Job!
As a avid reader I enjoyed reading “Stamped from the Beginning”. “Stamped” is the kids version, I think it does an excellent job of putting in terms which kids/teenagers can understand why things are the way they are when dealing with inequality.
La tremendous way to get younger readers interested and invested in anti racism. This streamlined version has all the ideas presented in a way for upper elementary and middle school leaders & readers to process, digest and engage in. Throughly recommend.
