Inclusive Literature

I’m trying to be more inclusive in my reading and read books by a wide variety of authors and about a wide variety of characters. I love the movement pushing for diversity in juvenile literature.

Here is a great article that talks about inclusive books.

Books are powerful. They help kids translate and process the world around them. So, it’s important for children to not only to feel included in picture books but also for books to make visible a range of stories outside their own.
