Spend a year reading diverse books with us!

 

Why read diverse books?

  1. Because all children deserve to see themselves in the books they read
  2. Because all children deserve to see each other in the books they read

 

What do we mean by “diverse”?

We embrace the definition set down by the diversity advocates at We Need Diverse Books:

“We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, Native, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, & ethnic, cultural, & religious minorities.”
