All children need to see themselves reflected in the stories they read. Books with accurate and respectful representation of identities play a critical role in raising informed, inclusive children. Books, whether in your home or local library, offer an opportunity to offset societal prejudices, marginalization and historical disenfranchisement through the power of story. You have the power to make that happen, and we have what you need to succeed: inclusive literacy resources, activities to encourage students to read at every step of their childhood, books for eager learners, and tips for families that make teaming up with your community easy.
