About the Event

How can picture books help us as parents to have big conversations with little humans? What possibilities do they hold to help us raise the next generation of open minded and open hearted global citizens in an ever changing world? Join us at this special Parenting Circle Workshop to find out!

​Building from my work as a library reader for preschoolers and their family, I’ll walk you through some examples of how I use storytelling and play to help nurture respectful curiosity about the world we live in and the multifaceted experiences of the people who inhabit it. We’ll also discuss some criteria to consider when building a more expansive and diverse library of picture books for your children. As a parting gift, I’ll share some of my favourite, go-to resources for your continued learning curves when it comes to parenting for social justice.

​​​​Key take-aways: 📚 Reflect on the importance of diverse representation in picture books, and why it’s never too early to engage children around social justice issues. 🎭 Experiment with practical approaches supporting diversity competencies in young children through storytelling and play 💡 Gain insight into criteria to consider when building a diverse and inclusive picture book library How to prepare? 🤔 Before the session, think about your favourite picture book, either one from your child’s library or from your own upbringing. Why was that particular story the one which came to mind? Whose story is told? Who are the supporting character(s) and what is/are their role(s)? What themes are present? ✍️ Please bring pen & paper Register to receive the video chat link: https://lu.ma/eu9p8eg9
