I originally planned to share a resource on independent play today but that didn't quite seem as important anymore. As our hearts grieve over the continued racial divide and chaos in our world, I wanted to take a moment to share some toys that spark conversation about race and support raising compassionate children.

Children learn about the world through play, toys, and books.
The toys we offer have a huge impact on the type of play our children experience and who they become. Children learn about the world through play, toys, and books. The materials we provide should be relatable but should also allow our children to learn about others' lives and cultures.
I challenge you to take a look through the toys, books, and materials currently on your child's play shelf. Do they allow your child to celebrate and learn about the similarities and differences of others? Do they encourage your child to be open-minded, compassionate, and inclusive to all people?
