Norman and the Nom Nom Factory
Before we get to today’s episode, we want to say to the families who are hurt and angry and scared right now: we’re with you. In this moment, we need to listen, learn and work to fight racism in our own communities. We want to recommend a resource we’ve turned to: a list of children’s books to help families talk about racism, justice and equality with kids. Follow this link to view the list: https://bit.ly/36T7Wv0 * * * Norman is a big, fluffy alien. He lives alone on Planet Gerp and eats Nom Noms for every meal.
