Librarians on the Line: Evaluating Children’s Books About Police

Next time you’re reading a story to a child take a look at how the book talks about good guys and bad guys. Is there any mention that in the United States people are innocent until proven guilty? If there are cops in the story, are they wearing body cameras?

Oakland librarians have created a toolkit for evaluating children’s books that feature police.

This story aired on The California Report in February 2018.
