The latest in the "Ordinary Terrible Things" series, a white child sees TV coverage of a police shooting—and has some questions.

"A much-needed title that provides a strong foundation for critical discussions of white people and racism, particularly for young audiences. Recommended for all collections.–Ashleigh Williams, School Library Journal, starred review

"A necessary children's book about whiteness, white supremacy, and resistance. Important, accessible, needed." —Kirkus

"Anastasia Higginbotham knows something that far too many of us have forgotten: Children are smart. Children are observant. Children understand fairness and justice. and they have an immense capacity for engaging with the "difficult" topics that we grown-ups too often try to avoid. I am in love with Not My Idea, and with Higginbotham's direct, radical, compassionate approach to talking about whiteness, racism, and the need to tell painful but important truths. As a white parent working to raise conscious, loving, anti-racist humans, I cannot wait to share it with my kids."

—Kate Schatz, NYT-bestselling author of "Rad American Women A-Z," "Rad Women Worldwide," and "Rad Girls Can."

Anastasia Higginbotham is the author and illustrator of "Divorce Is the Worst," "Death Is Stupid," and "Tell Me About Sex, Grandma"—all part of the Ordinary Terrible Things series. She lives in Brooklyn.
