Malia Jones, an epidemiologist, wrote a new book about COVID-19. (We read another ‘A Kids Book About’ book at Westwood- A Kid’s Book About Racism, by Jelani Memory)
The extra cool part- it’s a free download!
During this past Lent, we looked more closely at our own racial identity, how racism has shaped our lives, and developed anti-racism skills with the theme, ‘Who am I? Deepening our Conversation About Race’.
Anti-racism work is never done.
This post includes the parent resources that were provided during Lent to support our work in raising race-conscious, anti-racist kids.

The holy spirit is described as a wind rushing. By breathing to spin the pinwheel, kids can see the movement of the holy spirit as you pray as a family.
Happy Earth Day! Here’s a Messy Worship read-aloud favorite…The Earth Book is colorful, encouraging, and full of kid-friendly ideas of how to take care of the earth.
