"Mac Naughton and Davis explode the popular conception of racial innocence in early childhood. This provocative work challenges early childhood educators to rethink how they engage with issues of race in their classrooms and argues strongly for the inclusion of anti-racist pedagogies in early education." - Julie Kaomea, Associate Professor, College of Education, University of Hawai I at Manoa.
"This book locates race; it does not erase it from being a pedagogical imperative for early childhood educators. It takes us out of the soft, safe spaces where notions of inclusivity are tucked away, dangerous and outdated. Mac Naughton and Davis have looked into and beyond the mirror and found where the challenges lie, and where the changes can occur in ways that expand our work, not diminish it. They have embraced race and this makes this work an essential text for all early childhood professionals." - Karen L. Martin, Associate Professor, School of Education, Southern Cross University.
