Creating a diverse library
I started the year blogging about BOOKS and the importance of reading! Book reading is not only a nurturing bonding experience to share with your child. It is also a great way to expand a child's vocabulary and enhance language development.
Over the last few months, I have been very intentional about highlighting books that include diverse characters and stories. It is critical that all of our children see themselves reflected in the books we read to them. It is equally important for all children to see that anyone can be the hero (or the villain) of the story.
With this in mind, I added a special section to the Having Our Say website. I wanted to create a space where you can conveniently search and purchase books that feature children of all races, ethnicities, cultures, religions, etc. This is a dynamic list- I promise to add more titles as I discover them.
You can click here to access my diverse book recommendations. I hope you find these titles helpful as you look to create or expand your existing library.
