Le Racisme expliqué à ma fille
The idea for this book began when the award-winning Franco-Moroccan author Tahar Ben Jelloun's ten year-old daughter began asking him questions about racism on their way to a demonstration against a French law on immigration. He describes his book as such: "A child is curious. He or she asks many questions and expects precise and convincing answers. You can't cheat with questions that children ask...children are far better positioned than anyone else to know that one is not a born a racist but one can become a racist. This book tries to answer the questions my daughter asked, for children who are not yet intolerant, and want to understand. And regarding the adults who read this book, I hope it will help them answer questions that their own children might ask them, that are more embarrassing than one might imagine." 10+
