Series: Lorimer Deal With It

Rating: 0 vote(s).


A brand new series to help adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and promote peaceful homes, schools, and communities.


Few people would identify themselves as racist and yet we all hold attitudes and beliefs about cultures that are different from our own which affect the way we behave towards others.
Using realistic examples and sensitive language, Racism: Deal with it before it gets under your skin examines the sources of racial and cultural conflicts and the many forms -- both obvious and subtle -- that prejudice can take.
Whether they have experienced racial conflict as a member of a dominant or a minority group, this important book will help young people recognize and overcome barriers to peace, understanding, and acceptance. [Fry Reading Level - 7.0

"Helpful, without being preachy, The Deal With It series is very timely. Recommended."
