Race and Representation in Picture Books
Lifelong Learning

Through their simple words and appealing illustrations, picture books provide "mirrors and windows" that reflect readers' identities and open their eyes beyond their own experiences. Join an elementary school librarian for a look at the diversity gap in children's books and how disparities in representation impact a child's sense of self. In this class you'll explore recent titles, examine key criteria for selecting diverse picture books, and engage the potential of stories in conversations about race with children and grandchildren.
