The daily dose of graphic images of ISIS beheadings reinforces the anathema for Islam and its followers. In such fraught times, anti-Muslim racism reigns. Arun Kundnani contends that "Anti-Muslim racism ... appears as the most recent layer in this longer history, a reworking and recycling of older logics of oppression. From this perspective, Islamophobia, like other forms of racism, should not be seen only as a problem of hate crimes committed by lone extremists.

June Cummins, Children's Literature Association

Jewish children's literature offers radically diverse portrayals of Jewish cultures and experiences.

Such thematics subvert an often Caucasian and Ashkenzi-dominated discourse regarding Jewish literature.
