PICTURE BOOK READING GUIDE
GUIDED ANTI-BIAS/ANTI-RACIST READING | GRADES K+
This is a reading guide designed to accompany author Monica Gray Smith and illustrator Danielle Danile’s picture book You Hold Me Up. We recommend that grownups read the focus book and the reading guide content BEFORE reading with young readers. This guide will help you prepare your own questions for your young reader(s) and choose vocabulary, history, and other related topics to integrate into your learning and discussion.
Lesson content was written by Zapoura Newton-Calvert and was designed to start or deepen anti-racist and anti-bias conversations in families and other learning communities.
