Raising Little Allies

Teaching Diversity


Hey mamas,

I wanted to share with you this amazing free resource so generously created and shared by Lucy Song, fellow mama and incredibly talented designer over at Wander and Wonder Studio (@wanderandwonder.studio).

Raising
Little Allies – To – Be

by Wander and Wonder Studio


It is meant to be:

“an incomplete guide for parents and caregivers to begin conversations about race, privilege, bias, riots, activism, social injustice, diversity and inclusivity.

Learn to teach empathy through literacy, begin conversations with educational printable worksheets on themes titled C is for Colour, S is for Skin, and A is for Ally.

Black History book lists, video teaching resources, colouring pages, letter trace, affirmations and more!⁣⁣”


The free PDF is downloadable and printable in 5 minutes and also comes with links to other resources including short videos and pertinent literature!


I took the time to go through everything with my 4 year old daughter, Aimee, and I couldn’t believe how captivated she was by all the activities and how much she and I both learned together. Figuring out how to wade through difficult conversations about race and diversity is difficult enough for parents, and I’m so grateful that this guide made the conversation easy and fun.


Her favorite activity was learning how to mix paint to create different shades of skin colors, and we also loved learning about the science of skin.



My favorite activity was the adorable world map (pgs. 22 – 23) where I had the opportunity to explain to Aimee where our ancestors are geographically from (China & Taiwan), where I met daddy (France), and where we are living now (America). It was a great visual tool to show a more holistic view of the world that we live in.

Heart & Hand:

A matching activity using motor skills and color recognition!



Of course, no one resource is ever comprehensive enough to tackle such a complex issue, and this guide does not claim to be! However, it is a (fun) start! It has been a reminder for me, personally, to actively engage and talk about subjects that I may have previously been uncomfortable to talk about with my children because I didn’t see myself as an “expert” on the topic.

Yet I’m learning that they really do absorb more than we realize and internalize so many unspoken habits and norms — from the media that we consume, to the way we socially interact with others.

It’s up to us, mamas, to introduce and cultivate an atmosphere of love, inclusion, and diversity in our homes, so that we can raise a generation of wholly loved and loving adults.



Together, we can change the tides of history.
