Deal With It in the Name of PeaceBook - 2020
"Today's kids have lived their whole lives in a world where the topic of religious belief has become a serious social issue. The media and social media are full of stereotypes and misinformation about Islam in particular, and this atmosphere of fear and distrust has entered the everyday life of kids. When kids encounter conflict based on intolerance, inequity, and ignorance, they need the understanding and the tools to deal with the situation. Whether the reader is Muslim or not, Islamophobia: Deal with it in the name of peace provides information, relatable situations, and opportunities for kids to explore both the assumptions and biases of others and their own. This illustrated book offers information, quizzes, comics, and real-life scenarios to help kids think critically about, avoid and deal with Islamophobia. Considered from the viewpoints of the Believer, the Intolerant, and the Bystander, this issue is identified, examined and put into a context kids can understand and use to navigate issues of faith-based prejudice and discrimination."-- Provided by publisher.
