Two children, one White and one Black, talk to their families about an incident in their town where the police shot a Black man. The book answers questions children may have about traumatic events in an easy-to-understand way while addressing key issues related to racial injustice. Additionally, it includes a helpful guide for parents and carers to facilitate discussions around race with little ones. Something Happened in our Town is a must-have for every library and bookshelf.
