You Matter to Me

Biscuit the dog is adopted from the shelter and loves his new home and his new human family. The dad, especially, takes good care of Biscuit and is the person who walks him the most. But Biscuit soon realises that not everyone shares his feelings about his human. His human is Black, and some people in the neighbourhood are scared by that. Some people hold their purses closer, or tighten their grip on their children’s hands. With honest, age-appropriate storytelling, Doyin Richards starts a conversation about racism that is more important than ever. Here is a book that should be in every home, school, and library as a reminder that everyone matters.
