The Purim Superhero
By Elisabeth Kushner, Illustrated by Mike Byrne
Ages 4 to 9
Reading books where the characters just happen to be of a different race or religion is one way to show similarities between kids from all different backgrounds, which helps counter bias. In The Purim Superhero, Nate wants to dress up as an alien for Purim, a carnival-esque Jewish holiday, but his schoolmates want to dress like superheroes. Nate’s two dads help him come up with a solution.
