Deal with it in the name of peace
From the Series Lorimer Deal With It
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, this title provides information, relatable situations, and opportunities for kids to explore both the assumptions and biases of others and their own.
