Today, we at Kidliterati are excited to host a celebration of diversity in children's literature. Diverse titles create more empathetic readers, and we are proud to support empathy in the classroom with a very special giveaway--more on that in a minute!
Books provide perspective. Children need mirrors, books that reflect their point of view and tell them that their voices matter. Children also need windows, stories that show them new points of view to encourage empathy with others. We need now, more than ever, to understand and relate to one another.
We at Kidliterati have long admired the amazing work of We Need Diverse Books,
which is a grassroots organization created to address
the lack of diverse, non-majority narratives in children’s literature.
Thanks to #WNDB, so many new voices have support, both as artists and as
publishing professionals. But there is more work yet to be done.
We need as much diversity as possible in children's literature.
Now, on to the giveaway! Entries are open to teachers, librarians, and parents who wish to share diverse titles with their communities (be that schools, libraries, or classroom collections). Know a teacher friend who could use more diversity in their classroom collection? Want to broaden your library's collection? Help us share these titles and build empathy with young readers! The Rafflecopter entry form is at the bottom of this page, but first, here are the amazing titles we're giving away--50 BOOKS IN ALL!
Thank you for promoting diversity.ReplyDelete
