Writers Against Racism: Eboni Caught Her Son, Kai, (and Hubby)!

I’ve attached a photograph of my son reading Please, Baby, Please by Spike Lee (illustrated by Tanya Lee Lewis).  This was back when he was somewhere around 1 year.

We’ve been reading to him since he was 3 weeks old.  We still read this book to him.  He is now 3 and a half.

For my baby shower we asked people to bring a book to include his first library.  So he’s always around books.  We make a point to provide books by people of color and books with people of color as main characters.
