What Does Hate Look Like?
This nonfiction resource defines and describes different types of hate and discrimination by sharing personal experiences and real-life examples from the authors and other children. The book explores themes of prejudice, racism, anti-Semitism, ableism, advocacy, homophobia, transphobia, and the treatment of marginalized communities. It encourages readers to take a stand against hate, becoming upstanders instead of bystanders. Suitable for middle-school students, the book may provoke classroom discussions and reflections about the various themes and issues broached within the resource as it highlights the diversity of Canada. The range of experiences and perspectives of diverse Canadians may inspire teachers to read excerpts aloud during events such as Pink Shirt Day, Black History Month, and Truth and Reconciliation Day.
