From “Is There Something Wrong With Me?” written by Maria Uribe and illustrated by Natalia Murcia Gutiérrez

The book, "Is There Something Wrong With Me?" by Maria Uribe, describes how racism can affect a child even when it's unintended, like when a teacher anglicizes a student's name so it's easier for them to remember. It also teaches young kids about microaggressions and how they can respond.
