Through their simple words and engaging illustrations, Picturebooks can provide "mirrors and windows" that reflect readers' identities and open their eyes beyond their own experiences. Let's take a look at the diversity gap in children's books and how disparities in representation impact a child's sense of self. Together, we'll examine key criteria for selecting diverse picture books for your own children, grandchildren, or personal library. Finally, we'll explore recent titles to consider what kinds of stories make sense for engaging children in conversations about race.
