We’ve got an exclusive clip from an upcoming episode featuring bestselling author Ibram X. Kend, who makes a visit to Booktube Jr. to read his children’s book “Antiracist Baby” featuring illustrations by Ashley Lukashevsky. The kids all weigh in about the importance of diversity making for a really heartwarming episode.

Check out a clip from the episode, exclusively on BOSSIP below:

How cute are these kids??? Seriously, so cute we can’t take it. If you’re not already paying attention to YouTube Kids (we’re not sure how this is possible in the day and age when it seems like every American toddler already knows how to navigate an iPad) definitely check out BookTube Jr. and be sure to watch Ibram X. Kendi’s episode in full.

This is such a great way to introduce new kids books! We’re definitely adding this selection to our nieces and nephews selections!

Full episodes of BookTube Jr. go live Friday, September 24th!
