I would appreciate your opinion. In prior years I would have without hesitation eagerly applauded the latest Caldecott Award winning book, "We Are the Water Protectors", but now after being more mindful of implicit biases I have a concern regarding this book. The book itself is lovely and has a wonderful ecological message. It does not contain an explicit derogatory remark or illustration to any race or culture. However the antagonist is a black snake. The illustration of the black snake looks like a water/sewage pipe. Is it enough to follow up with young readers by reviewing that the black snake is not a representative of the black skin of humans? Am I being so overly cautious and sensitive that I might miss a wonderful learning opportunity?
