Booklists for Children/Caregivers about Race, Social Justice, and Activism

Booklist for Early Readers

Booklist for Middle Graders

Children's books can help start a difficult conversation, such as race, social justice and injustice, power in institutions, and activism. The lists above include informative, thought-provoking, and empathy-building books for early readers and middle graders. Each title has a link to a Goodreads site for more information. The tables show how many copies the Cloquet Public Library and the Arrowhead Library System own. If you would like to request items, you can do it through the online catalog, email us at,

or give us a call at 218-879-1531

during our business hours.
We hope you can use the Libraries' resources as tools to continue to learn together and talk with your child(ren).
