Kids’ Corner: Diverse Children’s Picture Books in Review (March 2017)


If you are new to my blog,  then you may not be aware that I review a batch of diverse children’s picture books every month.  What do I mean by diverse children’s picture books?  I mean children’s picture books that are written by or about people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+, and any other minorities.  The #WeNeedDiverseBooks movement has inspired me to not only reevaluate my reading, but also the books I read to my children.  Diversity in books is just as (if not more) important in children’s literature.  I know this is cliché to say, but children are our future and it is our job as parents (and/or educators) to teach them to celebrate diversity.
