Provide a book with pictures of babies of different races to show the child.
Ask the adult to slowly share the book with pictures of babies of different races. Hold the picture of a child of the child’s race next to the picture of the baby of a clearly different race.
The child looks longer at children of another race.
Children see racial differences at a very early age. At this age there is no judgment, just awareness.
