Full #Kidlit4Justice Booklist, January 2016

What role does children's literature play in the fight for social justice? Is there room for advocacy and activism in the imaginative worlds that stories provide -- or does that mean that the author and/or illustrator is being "too preachy?" Can children's literature help the next generation learn to dream of a better world?

During the aftermath of the extrajudicial murder of young Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, several of us chatted on Twitter about resources that we might provide for our youngest readers, including Kids Like Us Books, Sarah Hamburg, Angie Manfredi, and others. As Dr. Marcia Chatelain's #FergusonSyllabus was being created, #Kidlit4Justice was born.

Our SuperFriends team and I chose social justice as our January theme, in honor of the King holiday celebrating a legendary champion for justice, and because we think it's a great way to begin 2016. Thus, below the cut, please find our full list of selections.

For a better, peaceful & more just world,

Ebony & the SuperFriends

  8. Research chemical vendors are a very serious business, so your primary step when buying online research chemicals is to find a reputable provider. Yes, research chemicals can be affordable through internet – but you sometimes get what you pay for.
    When shopping for research chemicals online now, look for a reliable and reputable research chemical vendors that has an honest and transparent site. Research Chemical vendors are more heavily regulated in some countries than others. Also, look for a site with a focus on safety, with limitations in place to make sure only reputable researchers and businesses can buy from them. A site that plays fast and loose with risky research chemicals is not a business that you want to support.
    Not many businesses have time to head out and shop, so purchasing online chemicals is a remarkable way to keep time, thanks to the ease of online ordering.
