What Every Child Should Know is a modern children's book that radically instills awareness of social justice issues and community care within traditional children picture book storytelling.
Written by Lark Sontag, education and literary activist known for her work with the Blk Grrrl Book Fair and Will Start Small, What Every Child Should Know inspires children to grow up to believe in the kind of world they deserve is possible through acceptance, social cooperation, and, most importantly, action. Covering important movements such as "Black Lives Matters" and "Water Is Life" as well as instilling an understanding of a world that is borderless, nonbinary, neurodiverse, and accepting of differences, this is a book that every parent, guardian, and early childhood educator who is striving towards equity will reach for time and time again.
